Ahmad is a 37-year-old married Lebanese man. He’s a great support for his wife and his two children who are both at school. Ahmad manages the family’s expenses and provides them with a decent life. He started his business many years ago and has had to work really hard to build a worthy career for himself. He has been working as a car mechanic in his own garage, which is in a good location.
Today, he would like to receive a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to buy more car parts and mechanics' tools so that he can respond rapidly to his clients’ needs. He believes that acting properly and honestly is essential to attract more customers and to continue building a good future career. One of his greatest dreams is to further expand his business, which will hopefully increase his earnings.
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.
