Wissam is a 32-year-old Lebanese married man. He lives with his wife and only child, who is still attending school. Wissam has owned a coffee booth in his town since 2007.

Even though he spends most of his time working, Wissam knows that, in the end, he’s offering a fair way of living to his family and this is what he cares about most.

In the future, Wissam plans to have his own coffee shop.
