Amany is a 20-year-old young woman, a university student. Her family raise sheep and benefit from selling their products, which is the only source of income to them.
Amany is continuing her studies and paying the university fees from the family income. Amany wants to help her family increase their income by purchasing more sheep but Amany doesn't have the money to pay for this, so she needs to take a loan from FATEN. When Amany gets the loan, she will contribute to improve her family income that helps pay her university fees. This will enable Amany to complete her studies and gain the ability to change her family life for the positive in the future. Amany is photographed in the picture.
