Ahmad is a 34-year-old Lebanese single man. He lives with his parents, two siblings who are still attending school and four others working. With his siblings’ backing, he finds it much easier responding to his family needs and demands. He decided to start his own business as a constructor in 2006, after being involved in this domain for the previous ten years.
Ahmad is working really hard to serve his customers as quickly as he can. Today, he’s asking for a loan of $1000 from kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase added materials for his business. This loan will facilitate his business operations. In the future, he plans to take on bigger projects, outside and inside the country.
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.
