Ahmad's story

Ahmad is a 22-year-old from Gaza. He has been working in a blacksmith's workshop since the time he left his school in the ninth grade to help his poor family. In 2009, he started his own business to improve his living and increase his income. It was an impressive step forward, and that's why he is working hard to improve it. Ahmad applied for a youth loan from a Kiva field partner to buy a welding machine for his business and to register his business. He hopes that he can stay capable of developing his business and increasing his income to be able have a family in the future .
