Ahmad is a 31-year-old Lebanese single man who lives with his parents. All the family combines forces in order to cover their heavy costs of life.
Ahmad opened his own bakery in 1998. He has a wide range of food and products, and is looking to further enlarge his bakery. Today, he wants to borrow a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase new baking tools and supplies for his business. He notes that this will improve his work, which will allow him to attract more clients. In the future, he plans to renovate and expand his bakery.
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.
