Walid is a 50-year-old man who lives in the Bekaa with his wife and their three children.

Walid has been working as a blacksmith since 1996. He is special in his work because he is known for the good quality of his work. He decided on doing his business because he wanted to have independent work, as well as having previous experience. However, when he first started his business he didn’t have enough cash to purchase all the required tools for his work. His clients are his friends and neighbors.

Walid has requested a loan from Al Majmoua in order to purchase tools for his work and a car. This is the first time that Walid has requested a loan. In the future, he plans to keep on improving.
