Ahmad's story

Ahmad is a 22-year-old single Lebanese young man who is working as a salesperson in a roastery to cover his own expenses and maintain some of his family needs.

Recently, he opened his own computer games store to earn additional income and needs to improve it. For this reason, he is acquiring a loan from Kiva’s field partner Al Majmoua to make some improvements for his store such as adding a television and a storefront.

The ambitious young man wishes to succeed in his new business and increase his income to be able to create his own family.
