In one of Cairo’s poorest neighbourhoods, in a community where getting meat, fruit and daily bread is a constant struggle, a social practice known as al-gami’ya (the community) helps residents endure these hardships, offering, among other things, an alternative to the banking system. Reem Saleh makes the portrait of this community and its evolution through the years.
