Ahmad is a 33-year-old Lebanese, married man living with his wife and five children. He has been working in car furnishing for the past 18 years. His business income is very important in supporting his family and handling their high living expenses. Today, he is requesting to borrow $1000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase car textiles and sponges to help with his business. In the future, he plans to further expand his business.
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.
