I never went to school after I graduated from primary school. I am married and a mother of two sons. I love my children a lot, so in order to provide them a better life along with my husband , I joined the association with my girlfriends and sisters. I hope to eliminate middlemen who exploit female artisans and achieve our mission for fair trade. In my spare time, I like hiking with my family around the city of Marrakech.
