Ahmad is a 47-year-old Lebanese man. He lives with his wife and four children. Two children are working and the others are still attending school. He is a brave and, above all, hard-working man. A few years ago, Ahmad rented a plot of land in his town. He performed the needed changes on it to turn it into a parking lot and benefit from monthly rental charges providing his family with extra financial support.
With his requested loan from Kiva Partner Ameen s.a.l., he will purchase a gate to better protect the land and the cars that are parked there, especially at night. In that way, he will be able to gain his clients' trust, therefore attracting more customers and increasing his revenues. He is hoping to expand his business soon by increasing his work and collecting higher revenues.
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.
