Ahmad is a 27-year-old single man who has been selling water since 2005. He is a Palestinian refugee who puts forth much effort to improve his living standard. Ahmad used to sell vegetables but he found out that most of his villagers need clean water to drink. So, he turned to selling water because it is a daily necessity.
Ahmad is applying for a youth loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua in order to increase the number of water bottles available before the Holy Ramadan month where people consume water more than normally.
This would be his second loan as an Al Majmoua borrower. Through his previous loan, he was capable of buying a living room for his parents to keep them living in a healthy space.
He hopes to open a shop and distribute water to nearby villages.
