“Ten years ago, my husband married a second wife and left me. My son and I both soon developed cancer, but my son did not make it. In order not to beg others, I’ve been making Mekhak poked apples for the last seven years and selling them in Sanandaj’s Niqbal market. A lot of people in Sanandaj know me and buy my handmade stuff and take it to Europe. I struggle a lot during winter colds and summers because of the heat, but I’m happy to see many other women who, like me, have started working and selling goods.”
