Ahmad is a 39-year-old married man and the father of four young children. He has been working as a builder for the past ten years. He works hard to satisfy the needs of his family and all the related expenses.
Ahmad works on a freelance basis upon the request of his clients and in collaboration with some entrepreneurs. Over the years, his business has grown and he has a good number of projects.
Today, Ahmad is asking to borrow $1,500 for the second time after successfully repaying his first loan. He will use the loan to buy wood and more construction tools he needs.
Due to political and social challenges in Lebanon, personally identifiable attributes entrepreneurs may have been altered to protect their privacy (i.e., blurring portions of the borrower's picture, not indicating a name and location, etc.). Vitas appreciates Kiva lenders' understanding of these challenges and encourages them to continue their support for Lebanon's borrowers.
