Tarek's story

Tarek is a 26 year old man who lives in Saida, southern Lebanon. Since 2004, Tarek has owned and operated a coffee shop where he offers billiards, cards, other entertainment games, and Internet access. He also serves narguileh (also known as 'shisha' in Egypt) which is an ancient tradition enjoyed by the people of the Middle East. This tall (or short) water pipe is used to smoke fruit-flavored tobacco. Tarek requested a loan from A. Majmoua in order to purchase merchandise and new narguileh for his shop. This is the first time that Tarek has requested a loan.
Tarek is talented in his work because his clients feel comfortable coming to his shop and enjoying a nice coffee or drink with their narguileh. His clients are his friends, neighbors, passers-by and people from his region. When he first started this business, he had difficulty purchasing all the necessary merchandise for his shop, and the shop did not have a nice decor. Tarek decided on going into this business because he wanted to have independent work. In the future, he plans to keep on improving his business.
