Fatima says: “I was imprisoned for 7 months and about 5 months ago I released. While I was in jail, one of my friends there advised me to learn an occupation outside the jail. When I released, I learned sewing with a lady tailor. I sew 2-3 pairs dresses daily and I get 250-300 Afghanis per pair of dresses. My husband was addicted and we were living in a very bad economic condition but now my life is much better and my husband has quit smoking too and I am happy with him.”
