This work ethic shines through given the fact that she has never attended school, but still enrolled in a weaving certification program and started working at the cooperative. Hachmia is a single parent with two girls and a boy. Her dedication and persistence of her work allow her to use the money she earns to support the children's living and education. She is indeed a strong woman!
Khadija was born and raised in Ain Leuh and has lived in the village all her life. Since she never completed school. she jumped at the opportunity to join the Ain Leuh Cooperative back in 1982, as she saw it as a path to becoming literate and educated. Moreover, it was a great opportunity for her to find work near her home as she cannot walk or travel far distances due to a disability. She hopes that through her work she can continue supporting the growth of the cooperative so that it can become world famous. Khadija is married and has two children.
