Amani is a young woman from Rumanah Village in Jenin, Palestine. Amani was engaged one year ago and is getting married this summer. Amani and her fiance are now working on wedding preparations. Amani is still unemployed and looking for a job. Since Amani's wedding is around the corner, she decided to help her fiance by taking a loan of $2,000 from FATEN to cover some of the wedding expenses.
Amani's brothers are employed and earn decent salaries, but they couldn't offer much help.
In the picture above, Amani is at FATEN's office receiving the loan.
