“My name is Habiba, and I’m from Palani village in the Kamyaran area. I’m 53 years old and got married at 12. My husband had four sisters and one brother, all of whom were disabled. I lived with them and took care of them one by one. I was really young when my father died in the village flood; they never found his body. My mother taught me how to make bread; it was so important for her that she always said, “Let your breadbasket always be full of bread; when you have guests over, bread is more important than the food.” So, this is why I have taught all my daughters and the girls in my in-law family how to make bread.”
