Wafic is a 23-year-old, single man who has been selling coffee for five months. He sells espresso coffee to the neighboring shops and replies to customers' special delivery requests.

Wafic is an energetic, hard worker who puts so much effort into improving his living and increasing his income. Wafic applied for a youth loan from Kiva partner, Al Majmoua Lebanese Association for Development, in order to buy new computers, to open a special Internet cafe which will go in parallel with his present business, since both businesses can complete each other, as he says. This means that most of the people who will come to use the Internet service might request a hot drink to add joy to their time. In the future, Wafic hopes to keep on expanding both businesses, more and more.
