Ahmad Amro is an ambitious young man from Ramallah. He owns a gift and accessories store, where he stands in the picture above. His store is located in front of Al-Quds Open University of Ramallah. Ahmad is originally from Hebron. He moved to Ramallah to find a better job and ended up having this store.

Ahmad had always passion for books. Because his shop is in front of the university, he wanted to have a specialized books section in his store, and since he is financially tied, he came to FATEN and took a $3,000 loan for this purpose.

Ahmad is trying to have a variety of useful books to respond to all interests of university students. The new book section will fulfill his ambitions of having books in his store and will improve his financial situation.
