Waddah is a 23-year-old young man. He has an Internet cafe, which is his only source of income. Waddah wants to expand his cafe to increase his income by purchasing more computers but the amount of money he has isn't enough to pay for them, so he needs to borrow a loan of $1,000 from FATEN. When Waddah gets the loan he will be able to purchase more computers and increase the size of his cafe. This will increase the number of customers to his cafe and increase his income. Waddah is photographed in the picture.
