Fatna El mandouh
Originally from Ait Seba Kdima, a small village near Talsint, Zohr relocated to Talsint with her husband. Zohr has four children, two daughters and two sons. Zohr did not attend school but did learn to make baskets and weave rugs from her mother and sister while growing up. She uses the profits from her basket sales to buy things for her house and to help her children.
Born in 1977 in the village of Mazar outside of Talsint. Maimouna is divorced and has one teenage daughter, Fatima. Maimouna started attending the local women’s center as a child with her own mother and in many ways the women’s center became her school, the place where she learned the art of handicrafts. Today Maimouna is the resident expert in her community, sharing her knowledge of how to crochet, knit, sew, embroider, make baskets, rugs and much more. As the current president of the Talsint Handicraft Association, Maimouna has made incredible strides both personally and professionally. Taking on this leadership role has challenged Maimouna to become a strong communicator, a budding business woman and a true advocate for female artisans in Talsint. Maimouna has used the profits from her basket sales to purchase land and begin building a house of her own. Maimouna’s hope is to continue to build a successful cooperative and create more good work for the women of Talsint.
