Ahmad is a 34 year old Lebanese man. He is married and lives with his wife and three children, all of whom attend school. He and his wife are doing their best to increase the family's income and pay their children’s heavy school fees. Ahmad began working on his own as a blacksmith a few years ago, after he learned this profession through nine years of experience in the business. He decided to work on his own to improve and develop himself. As he wants to enlarge his business and get more work, he decided to take out a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to purchase supplies of metal and an electric generator. This will facilitate his work and allow him take on bigger projects. Ahmad’s greatest dream is to educate his children well and see them achieve higher positions in life.
