Ahmad is a 48-year-old Lebanese married man living with his wife and four children who are attending school. He has invested in land where cars can park all day long. He has two employees who help him serve customers. He is very happy as he is supporting his family well and the employees’ families as well, indirectly. Ahmad seeks to constantly expand his business. That’s why he is requesting a loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l to renovate the tents installed in the parking area so that the cars can be parked in a safe place with no threat of damage. In the future, he looks forward to borrowing more Kiva loans with the aim of enlarging his business further.
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.
