Waheed's story

Waheed, 47 years old, is a Palestinian man from the city of Bethlehem. He is married and the father of four children. Waheed chose to take a loan from ACAD so he can buy a new grill and some needed equipment for baking pastry. Waheed is the sole breadwinner of his family so, in addition to his pastry store, he works as a chef at the Bethlehem Arab Society For Rehabilitation.

Competition in his area is the main business challenge that Waheed faces. He plans to expand his business and open new branches of pastry stores. Finally, Waheed wants to thank ACAD and Kiva for their support and help.
