Ahmad is a 54-year-old Lebanese married man living with his wife and five children. He works in the construction field and specializes in getting wall foliage work done. He has been involved in this domain for the past 20 years. Simultaneously, he has worked at his town’s municipality since 2010.
It’s noticeable that Ahmad has a big family, and working at two jobs is not surprising since at this moment of time, the life expenses are becoming very pricey. Ahmad has to do no matter what to satisfy his family’s needs.
He is very confident that he will be able to achieve substantial growth. He hopes that the loan that he is asking for from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l. to buy new construction tools and supplies will help him increase his income by 15%.
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.
