Halima is from Serimt and was born in 1990. She is married with a man from the local village and has attended school through the ninth grade. She left school as her family could not afford to pay the funds for her to attend. As a young girl, however, she learned the craft of weaving from her mother, and has used that skill as a member of the cooperative to earn sustainable income.
