Ahmad is a 26-year-old Lebanese single man living with his parents and three siblings. This young man decided in 2010 to start his own business working as a furniture painter. He has had 8 years of previous experience working in this domain.
Today, he’s requesting to borrow $2,500 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to renew his business tools in order to accomplish his work properly. He hopes that the coming year will continue to bring him positive growth and increased sales.
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.
