In Rod El Farag, one of the poorest residential areas in Cairo, daily food is a constant struggle, but the sense of community shared by the inhabitants helps them to overcome, at least to some extent, their hardships through a social practice known as "al Gami'ya", or "the Assembly", which functions as an alternative banking system.
