Wadih Sekar

Business: Restaurant
Location: Zahlé

Wadih found out about AEP thanks to his sister, a friend of the credit officer in Zahle. This Lebanese gentleman learned his trade as a restaurateur abroad and decided on opening an Italian restaurant. AEP allowed him to realize his dream with a loan of $6,000 in June 2014.

At Pinocchio, you can eat in, take away or ask for delivery. Clean and welcoming, the restaurant has its regulars and an excellent reputation. With AEP’s help, Wadih entered the YMCA 'Entrepreneur of the Year 2015' competition and won a handsome sum.

Today, he cooks alone, employing someone to wait and help with maintenance. Should you pass through Zahle, do stop to try the Pasta Fetuccini, Pizza Alfredo or Pitta Burger, all much enjoyed by Wadih's customers.
