You are a lucky generation; you are supported by the President, Mr. Abd Al Fatah Al Sisi which was not valid for my generation or any other previous one. You must take advantage of this support as Mr. Al Sisi declared that 2016 is the year of the youth. He provided loans with amount of EGP 200 billion to small, micro and medium enterprises.
