Ahmad is 35-year-old married father of two children. For less than a year now, he has been hired to manage a sandwich restaurant based on his vast experience in the business. In a short time, Ahmad succeeded in building a good reputation for the restaurant in the area, running it with dedication, integrity and quality service.

Ahmad is applying for a loan from Kiva’s Partner, Al Majmoua to buy a car. He will use this car for delivering sandwiches across his neighborhood as well as for personal use. It is essential for Ahmad to augment his business and add to its reputation. In the future, he intends to buy the restaurant, thus attaining a stable business and sustainable source of income for himself and his family.

This is Ahmad's second cycle as an Al Majmoua borrower. He is very optimistic about it, since his previous loan helped a lot in improving his business.
