Born in Talsint in 1974 Zahra is married and has two daughters. Zahra completed her studies through the fifth grade. She learned how to make baskets from her older sister and has a little experience with weaving rugs. Zahra does sewing work on the side and studies the Koran in her spare time. This is Zahra’s first experience being a member of an association. Zahra hopes that the teaching and education around handicraft will continue because it is a source of strength for many families in Talsint.
