Handmade by the Following Members of Association Timnay
Fadila is born in the village of Tamazirt but she got married and moved to the region of Naqeb to live with her husband.She has one girl and 7 sons. 3 of her sons are married and moved to their houses, but the other 4 sons and daughter still live with her. Her husband and the father of her children passed away 15 years ago, leaving her with huge familial and financial responsibilities. Her husband worked in Agriculture so he did not have a regular income, and after her husband's death, she worked in agriculture as well to cover the daily spendings. However, as her sons grew up, they started working as vendors of vegetables and shepherds and in agriculture and helped support the family. Fadila hopes to be and stay in good health and live a happy life with her children. Despite the fact that Fadila never went to school, she takes care of the association's accounts and knows how much they spend and earn without recording them in the accounts ledger. Fadila joined the association when she heard about it from one of her friends, and then she rushed and registered in order to be able to have regular work and income. She mastered knitting and can do all the different trappings. She learned the profession from her mother at an early age. She wishes all the best to the association and hopes it attracts more women who want to register in order to improve their living conditions. She also hopes that, one day, the association would have a building and an office to facilitate the meetings and work.
