Amneh is a 35-year-old single young woman. Her family works in agriculture with a low income. For the past 10 years, Amneh's brother has also had a grocery store selling grocery products, which has been a profitable project but not enough to cover the family's needs.
Amneh is requesting a 3,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her brother cover the costs of purchasing more groceries and improving the store's condition by painting, installing a new door,etc. This will increase sales and improve the family's income. Amneh is a conservative woman, so her brother Khaled is photographed instead.
