Hanou was born in Ait Amar Aghdou. When she got married, she moved to Sidi Yahya Ou Youssef with her husband. Now a widow, she has seven children, four of which are married. Hanou earns her income from different small jobs, and allowance from her kids.
Despite joining the association when it opened in 2011, she still struggles to make a living due to the low percentage of sales. She learned how to weave, like most women, from her mom. She specializes in making everyday rugs, and traditional Handira rugs. She hopes one day, her craft will allow her to make a decent living to afford electricity and furniture for her home.
Khadija was born in a small village Sidi Aheya Youssifi. She is married and is a mother to four children. She has been weaving from a young age and is very skilled in making rugs, Hanbal, and Handira.
Khadija enjoys traveling to Kenfira. She hopes to earn enough money from the association to build her family a house.
