Walid is a 33-year-old single man who has been working in the hooka business for six years. He also has a pool table and almost all of his customers are attracted to his shop because they enjoy both activities he provides.

His business is based on entertaining his customers. That's why he is applying for his present loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua, in order to increase his Hookas to expand his business and to reply better to the increased number of customers he is willing to have.

Walid is working hard to keep on expanding his business as much as he can, to open a wider entertaining place in the future.
