Ammar is a 25-year-old, single man. Ammar is a blacksmith and owns his own workshop, but the income he generates is not enough to cover all of his living costs.

Ammar is preparing himself to get married soon, so he wants to finish building his own house, to which he can bring home his bride. Ammar is requesting a 3,000 USD Youth Loan from FATEN. He will use the loan to cover the cost of purchasing construction supplies, such as bricks and cement. This will enable Ammar to prepare a suitable house to live in, soon, with his coming wife.

Ammar was photographed in the location of his house.
