Ahmad is a 31-year-old married man living with his wife and two children who are still attending school. He is from Lebanon. He has owned a shop since 2002 where he sells air conditioners. He also performs needed maintenance on broken ones. He is the only income provider of his family.
Today, Ahmad is asking to borrow $2000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase additional air conditioners in order to sell them and make good profits. 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.
