Naima was born in Afourer in 1999 and has never attended school because her father did not want her to learn, and instead take care of the rest of the children of the house. She is now married to a man from the local village, and they have one son. She learned the craft of weaving when she was young from her mother. As a member of the cooperative, she has been able to develop her weaving skills. Naima hopes that good things come to the cooperative.
