Adnan's story

Adnan is a 53 year old man who lives in the Beirut, capital of Lebanon with his wife and their two children. Adnan has owned and operated a coffee shop for five years. He also offers “narguileh” (also known as 'shisha' in Egypt), which is an ancient tradition enjoyed by the people of the Middle East. A tall (or short) water pipe is used to smoke fruit-flavored tobacco. Narguileh is enjoyed in cafes across the Middle East and is beginning to gain popularity in the US, Europe, and other countries. He decided to start his business because he used to work as a waiter and gained experience from his previous jobs. He is special in his work because he is well located, and he does his best to meet his clients’ demands and offer them the best. His clients are his friends, neighbors and tourists. When he first started his business, he didn’t have a lot of clients, because he wasn’t known by the public, but he knew how to enlarge his network. He has requested a loan from Al Majmoua to purchase an espresso machine. Adnan has been a microcredit client for seven years now and has always paid on time. His previous loans allowed him to continually improve his business by purchasing the necessary tools to have a nice coffee shop.
