A loan of $1,500 helped to buy flour and a refrigerator for his bakery.


Ahmad's story

Ahmad is a 29-year-old single man who has been working in a baking business for 18 years. Ahmad was 11 years old when he started working to make his own living because his parents' financial situation forced him to stop his elementary education and quit childhood life to make his own future.

In 2009, Ahmad started his own business. He opened a Manakish Bakery (traditional Lebanese breakfast, folded dough with special toppings).
His business is going on just fine, but he needs extra income to increase his business capital and improve his financial situation. That's why he applied for a youth loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua, to buy flour and a refrigerator for his bakery.

Ahmad is highly skilled in his business because of his long experience as a worker. He is working hard on expanding and improving it as much as he can, to make sure that he will have a future brighter than his past.
