Ahmad is a 58-year-old Lebanese divorced man living with his four working children. He’s the one taking care of his family and trying to offer them a fair way of living. He has been working at renting apartments on a free-lance basis for the past twelve years. He’s expert in his job and well known from his customers.
Today, he needs to borrow a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to perform the needed maintenance on some of his apartments. In that way, he will guarantee the safety of his clients and demonstrate that he’s delivering quality as well. In the future, he plans to develop his job and buy additional apartments.
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.
