Munira's husband is working abroad. Munira lives with her mother-in-law in her husband's house. She has more than seven years of experience sewing dresses. Previously, she worked at home, raising children, looking after cattle, and keeping her garden all by herself. She now works as a seamstress in a studio. Munira wants to buy a new sewing machine.
