Ahmad is 49 years old, married, and has five children, four of whom attend school and one of whom works. In 2010, he opened a coffee shop in his town. He has loyal customers who always meet at his place to have fun and enjoy their free time.
Ahmad is requesting a loan from Vitas s.a.l, which he will use to purchase needed products such as coffee and to renovate his café. This will increase the number of customers and, therefore, his revenue. One of his greatest dreams is to earn enough money to offer his children whatever they want. He also seeks cover his children’s study fees.
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.
