Meet the Artisans
Born in Tihnda village(2 hours away from Sidi Yahya Ou Youssef), Fatima moved when she got married. They have a small amount of land they use to farm. However, her husband mostly works in other people’s fields in order to make a living. They had three kids, although one died recently at the young age of 17 years old. Her daughter is 7 years old and her son goes to high school in a small nearby city called Tounfite. Due to her poor health, she never worked before joining the association last year in 2019. She sells rugs that her mother taught her how to make. Currently, Fatima lives with her family and parents-in-law. She wishes to help her husband and father-in-law with the home’s expenses. When her financial situation improves,she wants to fix their house’s roof and get better furniture. Additionally, she wants to go on pilgrimage to Mecca. When asked about the future, Fatima hopes both her kids become teachers and that she can travel somewhere new, but where the culture is still similar.
Malika is from Kassa Vwardel. She is married and is the mother to three children. She learned to weave as a child at home. She enjoys her work in crafting and sewing and is very skilled in making rugs and Hanbal. She joined Association Zaouia in 2014. Malika uses the income she receives from her work to help her husband financially and hopes that her family can live a good life together. She hopes to one day visit Beni Mileh.
