A woman and mother of three who left school when she was fifteen, found herself in a grim situation when her husband passed away and there was no source of income to support herself or her children. Her age, gender, lack of skill set and formal education made it nearly impossible for her to secure a job. At Ahlounas Agro-Food Production Facility she not only found employment and financial security but a career as well. Although she initially began working in the kitchen, with time and training, she worked her way up to become supervisor of the Agro-Food Production Facility. She now stands as role model to all the women in the factory not only as a great mother but also as a successful career woman.
