Ahmad is a 54-year-old married man from Lebanon. He is living with his wife and four children who are still attending school. He is a contractor, working in this occupation for the past 13 years. He works on a freelance basis, responding rapidly to customers' demands.
With his requested loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l., he will purchase products needed for his work such as cement. Ahmad intends to reinforce his operation and expand his business with the aim of gaining higher income to better support his family.
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.
