A loan of $1,000 helped to buy new tools and furniture for his business.

Ahmad's story

Ahmad is a 27-year-old single man who has been working as a barber for twelve years. He was only 15 years old when he started working to help with his family's living. In 2009, he opened his own shop and made a special part of it for kids, decorated with pictures, characters, and floor coverings.

Ahmad is applying for a youth loan from Kiva's partner, Al Majmoua, in order to buy new tools and furniture for his business. Through this loan he will be able to develop his business to attract new customers.

Ahmad is a hard worker. He plans to keep developing his business as much as he can to please his customers. He especially wants to please the children by providing them with new haircuts and gifts to make sure they stay loyal to him and bring in their parents for a cool haircut. He hopes to continue developing his business and to make a small family of his own in the future.
