Ahmad is a 46-year-old Lebanese married man living with his wife and four children, two of whom are still attending school. In 1991, he invested in a small piece of land and transformed it into a parking lot. Today, he is requesting to borrow $2,000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to perform needed maintenance on the parking lot and to install water canals to avoid facing water flooding during the winter season. This will be his third Kiva loan.
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.
