Fatma is originally from Egypt and graduated from Glasgow Caledonian University with a Master’s degree in Social Business and Microfinance in 2015.
She joined the Yunus Centre in 2016 as a Research Intern to work on a two year project funded by the Scottish Government’s Chief Scientist Office ‘Fair credit, health and well-being: eliciting the perspectives of low-income individuals (FinWell)’. The project aims to establish, from the perspective of low and moderate income individuals, if an association exists between the use of financial services, particularly fair-price microcredit, and health and wellbeing, and the mechanisms through which any perceived association might operate. Fatma is working with Professor Cam Donaldson, Professor Rachel Baker, Dr Olga Biosca and Dr Neil McHugh and colleagues across the third sector.
