This is Ahmad, a young Lebanese man. He’s 23 years old, single, and living with his parents and three siblings at their house located in one of the beautiful Lebanese villages. He, together with his father, is managing the family expenses. However, Ahmad decided to have his own business and take some responsibilities on his own. In 2008, he started to take home painting projects in his town and the neighboring villages. He works with high professionalism, wishing to grow in this domain.

Today, he’s looking to take a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase additional paint and new colors to be able to start his new project. Ahmad is really ambitious. He’s seeking to launch a painting company under his name, where he can deliver paintings to all the surrounding shops and therefore increase his revenues.
