Ahmad is a 19-year-old Lebanese single man. He lives with his parents and one sibling. His father is the primary one who is responsible for his family's needs and demands. As for Ahmad, he decided to start his own business as a construction worker in 2008. He is a hard worker looking to serve his customers as quickly as he can.
Today, Ahmad is in need of a loan of $1200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase new construction tools for his business. This loan will facilitate his business operations and allow him to take on more projects. In the future, he plans to take on bigger projects inside and outside 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.
