Ahmad's story

Ahmad is a 49-year-old married Syrian refugee and the father of five children. He works in an organization where he benefits from a fixed monthly salary that he uses to cover his family's daily living expenses. He is very hardworking and puts enormous effort into caring for his family and providing them with a decent life. He is acquiring a refugee loan from Kiva's field partner Al Majmoua to buy a car for his son to help him with his transportation. Ahmad's hope for the future is to continue being able to care for his family and improve their living conditions.
