In addition to his work as a plumber, Ahmad started a new business in March 2013 that has to do with entertaining people, to increase his family's income. He opened a entertainment shop where he provides people with services such as Play Station, billiards, and Babyfoot.
Ahmad is acquiring a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua to start a lingerie-selling business. He plans to ask his wife to run it at home, in a way that she'll fill free time with something productive and at the same time take care of her family.
