Khadija as a native of Agouti and has lived in the village her entire life. She completed primary school and hopes to study again one day. When Khadija is not embroidering or crocheting new items at the association, she can be found working in her family's field. She hopes that through the sales of her items, she'll be able to support the growth of Association Ighrem and Timdokal Ighrem.

Fatima was born in the village of Agouti in the 1980’s. She studied until middle school but unfortunately had to drop out when she became ill. Later, Fatima became a teacher at a locally run pre-school where she teaches all the children in the village of Agouti how to read and write. Fatima learned how to weave from her mom in her home growing up and specializes in making pile knot rugs. Due to her skill, she quickly joined Association Timdokkals as soon as it was established. She uses the money she earns from the association to buy everyday items. She hopes that her and her association’s rugs become well known throughout the world.
