Children: 1 son (married) and 1 grandchild
About the Weaver
Fatma is a very industrious woman, and in part by necessity. Her husband passed away early in their marriage leaving her alone with their young son. Fatma raised her son on her own, and pursued various avenues to provide for her small family. Fatma earned a teacher certificate for elementary school grades. Building upon this experience, she opened a preschool in her house during the time that she wove her rug.
Fatma’s hard work has paid off. Her son is grown and married, and they welcomed Fatma’s first grandchild into the world. May they have a bright future ahead of them!
