A loan of $2,500 helped to purchase additional mobile phones and recharge cards for his mobile-phone shop.


Ahmad's story

Ahmad is a 48-year-old, Lebanese man. He is married and has four children, one of whom works while the others are still studying.

Ahmad is under pressure to provide his family with a respectable way of living. This is why he started his own business. In 2008, he opened a mobile-phone shop, where he also sells recharge cards and all related accessories.

Today, Ahmad has decided to borrow a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase additional mobile phones and recharge cards for his mobile-phone shop. This Kiva loan will enable him to increase his sales and profits -- thus his revenues. In the future, he plans to expand his business offerings.
