Growing up Fatima worked with her mother on rugs but she learned how to make baskets through her time working with the association. Her craftsmanship and design have steadily improved over time and she is one of the association’s highest sellers. Fatima attends the local women’s center where she has learned how to sew and crochet. With her basket earnings she aspires to build a better life for her children.
