Ahmad's story

Ahmad is a 48-year-old married man and the father of three children. He is a Palestinian refugee, living and working in Lebanon.

For the past 21 years Ahmad has been working in the coffee business. In 2005 he started his own business to improve his living and increase his income.

Ahmad is a hard worker and puts much effort into keeping his machines up to date to keep his customers happy. He is applying for a 1700 USD loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua in order to buy a new espresso machine. He will also use part of the loan to pay for his son's university fees. He hopes to keep on developing his business and providing for his family.
