Walid is a 34-year-old single man from Lebanon. He has been working in the construction business, and dealing primarily with stone, for 15 years. He likes his work a lot and his clients like dealing with him a lot, too.

Walid is requesting a Loan from Al Majmoua for two reasons: first, to buy products necessary for his water pump; and second, to open a small restaurant, which will be a new, extra business. He believes that his work in construction is seasonal and must be supported by another efficient means of income, and a restaurant is the perfect choice. Walid hopes to improve his business and to succeed in his new venture.
