Amneh is a 53-year-old woman, and she is married with five sons and six daughters. Her husband and one of her sons are construction workers with decent salaries. Amneh wants to help her husband purchase a new construction kit to improve his work, but the amount of money she has isn't enough to pay, so she needs to take a loan of $1,500 from FATEN. When Amneh gets the loan, she will be able to purchase the construction kit for her husband, so her husband will improve the quality of his work. He will work extra hours to increase his income and offer his family better living conditions. Amneh is a conservative woman, so her husband is photographed instead.
