Josephine’s parents separated at a young age which led to her dropping out of school in order to help support her family financially. Before joining the KNOWN SUPPLY family, her only source of income came from selling maize on the side of the road; but now, through the income she saves from the program, she is able to acquire more than three times her original income and can now pay for her son’s schooling.

DREAMS FOR THE FUTURE
“I plan to start up a bigger business and also raise animals since I now have a piece of land.”

WHAT MAKES CROCHETING ENJOYABLE  
“Crocheting has enabled me to forget my problems. It has also provided me with a great opportunity that I have not dreamt of and my life will never remain the same again.”

LOVE DEFINED
“Love means doing well to one another.”

Hello and thank you for the beautiful hat! It is almost winter in the USA and I am a bald man, so I appreciate a warm hat. Thank you for the care and skill you put into creating this hat, it will make me happy for a long time. I am glad to know the person who made it, it is better than having a hat made by a machine. I will love it and think of you.

I wish you luck and great success in life.

Thank you,

Mike

My husband and I attended the Catalyst leadership conference in Southern California back in the spring of 2013. That was the first time we were blessed to learn about KK International. They had some products that some of the other ladies had made available to purchase there. My husband bought a hat then, that he fell in love with! It was the first hat in this beanie style that kept his head warm and cool at the same time. By the end of the conference, he was impressed to donate his hat to a younger gentleman with us in the group who was unable to afford one of his own. Although it was hard to part with his new beloved hat, my husband did what he felt he was being asked in his heart to do. The young boy was more than thrilled! And as a thank you for my husband, I was able to go online and purchase another hat a few weeks later for Fathers Day as a surprise!

We both want to thank you so much for putting all your love and hard work into making this hat. It meant the world to my husband that he was able to yet again have his beloved hat back! Without your hard work and dedication, not only would my husband have a new favorite hat, he wouldn't have been able to bless another with such a special gift.
