Fatima Oukhallou Mimoun
Itto was born in a small village outside of Ait Hamza and moved to the village when she married her husband at the age of 19. She and her husband have three children. Her oldest son is almost finished with high school and is one of the best students in her class. Itto did not study in school but is a regular at the association’s literacy class. Her sole source of income is through the sales of her rugs and hopes that after the needs of her family are met she can save a little money to travel to her favorite Moroccan city of Agadir.
Amzil Itto has lived in Ait Hamza her entire life and has been a member in the association for four years. Amzil is an expert weaver as can create every product that the association creates. She is married to a famous musician in the region and they have five children and three grandchildren. With her first sale she hopes to buy her first cell phone so she can be notified when her future products sell!
Fatima Oukhlu Fatima was born in Ait Hamza during the 1960’s. She was born into a poor family and never went to school because when she was younger only boys could attend school. Instead of school, Fatima learned how to weave and sold her weavings to notable people in her village and also sold rugs from time to time to cover the costs of food and clothing for her family. When she married, she furnished her new home entirely with rugs that she created by hand. Since the family she married into didn’t have a flock of sheep as many families did at the time, she continued to weave to help support her family. She joined Association Tithrite in order to generate more income from her work, and she has been at the association since it began.
Zahra started weaving when she was eight years old. Her female neighbour taught her how to weave. She never went to school and she used to work for some rich families in order to support her own family. Her parents died and then she lived with her brother and his wife. Now that she's a member of Tithrite Association, she no longer feels like she's a burden to her brother. She hopes to help her poor community because she knows how it feels. She likes to weave alot and she thinks that it always feels good to earn money from what she likes to do.
Nazha was born in 1960. She is married and is a mother of four kids. One of her neighbours taught her how to weave and then she was able to support her family financially. She is the eldest of her siblings so she had to help her parents raise her siblings and educate them. She taught her sisters how to weave. She supports her husband as well. She uses the money she earns to buy her medicines because she suffers from high blood pressure. Nazha likes to be involved in social community service. She hopes to sell more to be able to contribute more to her community.
