A loan of $1,000 helped to pay for his wife's medication.

Ahmad's story

Ahmad is a 44-year-old married man, the father of three children. He has been working as a taxi driver since 2007; his car is his only source of living. In Lebanon, taxi drivers suffer from a very bad financial situation, since fuel is very expensive and the government is not supporting them or setting special rules for exceeding the number of taxi drivers in the region, which results in low income work for them.

Ahmad is applying for his fifth loan cycle from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua. His previous loans were invested in doing necessary maintenance on his car and answering most of his family's needs. Today, unfortunately, his loan will be to pay for his wife's medication. He puts in so much effort to cover everything she might need.

Ahmad is so pleased that he found Al Majmoua to stand by his side and meet his needs, since no one lends to the working sector in Lebanon. He hopes to buy a new developed car in the future.
