Halima was born in Sidi Yahya Ou Youssef, where she finished primary school. Her mom taught her how to weave at the age of 14. When both of her parents died, she moved in with her siblings. She now has many responsibilities at home. She joined Association Zaouia, because it's the only way she can earn money as a female weaver. She makes rugs, Handira, and Hanbal. She is also very skilled in coming up with new designs. She hopes to earn a better income to cover the medical expenses of her ill sister. She also wants to visit the city of Agadir one day, and buy a computer. Her favorite color is pistachio. In her free time, Halima likes to walk around and go to a special place called Tatrout.
Meryam is from Zaouia. She had a limited education growing up. She left school, like most girls in her village, because there was no secondary school close by.
