Ahmad is a 22-year-old single man who has been working in the metal business since 2006. He specializes in working with aluminum. Ahmad is well known in his region with an excellent reputation among competitors. He finished intermediate school and transitioned to work in order to help his parents to improve their living and to develop their socioeconomic situation.

Ahmad is applying for a youth loan from Kiva's partner, Al Majmoua. He plans to buy the necessary, updated machines for his business such as an aluminum-compressing machine and a compiling machine. This is his first experience as an Al Majmoua borrower. He hopes that the future loan will be invested in opening new branches and in increasing employees beyond the one he has now.
