She moved there to live with her husband. Kabira has two sons and a daughter. Her eldest son is in the sixth grade and the second is in the third grade, both in elementary school. Her daughter is in kindergarten. Kabira never went to school when she was young but she took literacy classes when she grew up. She joined the association after an American organization visited the region and motivated women to create the association. Kabira used to weave and make products of all kinds, which she learned from her mother since she was a child. She was selling most of her products to middlemen for very cheap prices because there was no alternative. So she made almost no profits. One day, an American lady from the volunteers of the US Peace Corps came to the region and tried to help women sell their products via the internet to allow them make the money they deserve. Kabira loves what she does. She loves to create unordinary designs and to innovate. She always strives to come up with new ideas, to please her customers, and to have a large turnout from all over the world. She also does the art of sewing on tissues, and she wishes all the success and continuity to the association that gave her a lot of experience, joy, friendships and independence. She hopes one day she will visit Mecca and do a Hajj (pilgrimage). She cannot wait to see her children grow up and get married and have a life full of joy and delights.
