Rawya is a mother of two daughters and one son. Her husband is an employee with a decent salary and she is a housewife. Rawya borrowed money from her brother to pay her children's tuition fees earlier this year.
Rawya took out a loan from FATEN to pay back her brother and repay FATEN on a monthly basis as it is easier than repaying the brother at once. Rawya feels much better that she could repay her brother as he is not a rich man and this amount would help him.
Rawya's husband Mahmoud appears in the picture here instead of her as she is a religious woman.
