Walid is a 48-year-old married father of three children. He owns a small bakery with 30 years of experience in this domain. He sells a local baked good known as Manakish, a traditional Lebanese breakfast. His wife is currently unemployed and two of his children are enrolled in a private school, which means that he has to settle the tuition fees from his own revenue. He decided to contact Al Majmoua because he needs to maximize his profit in order to provide a healthy life and environment for his family. In fact, he will be using the loan to purchase raw materials, sugar, etc, which are the basic ingredients of his baked goods. As for the future, Walid hopes to open up a new branch of his bakery.
