Previously, Aida would sell juice on the street – her outgoing personality and joyful spirit helped her sell her products but in the end, she wasn’t earning enough money to cover the expenses of her household. Now that she has a consistent income, she is busy preparing for a future as a restaurant owner. She wants to leverage her positive attitude and knowledge of food preparation to start a restaurant for the local construction workers.

“I want my children to go to excellent schools. I want them to learn English so they can get good jobs.”

“My dad worked hard for my family. One time he saved some money and purchased me a doll before I even asked for one.”

“Love is patience and peace. It is my children, my parents, my brothers and my friends.”

Did she make your product?

Dear Aida,

I LOVE my head wrap! I got it in the mail just a few days ago and I don't want to take it off. Your story is so powerful and your picture is so beautiful. Thank you for your hard work and dedication to your job. I pray that you get to open a restaurant one day and that your children can get a good education. I am a literature and theatre teacher here in Chicago so I know how important school is! May the Lord bless you and keep you this Christmas season. Thank you again so much!! Peace, joy, and hope. xoxo

Dear Aida,

Thank you for making the small "Davis Jr." beanie. We needed it for my son's first camping trip in the forrest. It feels so special knowing you helped make it versus some machine equipment at a factory. I was happy to hear about your goals and aspirations. Blessings to you and your family from California, USA.

Love, The Eckert Family

I bought a head band, which would be good now in the cold days, and it's absolutely gorgeous. Thank you so much!

I wish you and your family a happy Christmas (if you celebrate this) and a peaceful New Year! Keep up the good work, you're doing a great job. Definitely not the last time I'll order from Krochet Kids.

May all your dreams come true! I really hope you'll be able to start a restaurant and that you're children get the good education.

Dear Aida,

Thank you so much for making me a wonderful headscarf! I received it today as a Hanukkah present from my mom and I love it SO much!!! It looks so cute and it is so soft. You have such wonderful talent and I hope to buy something else soon. I can't wait to wear it to school tomorrow and show it to all of my friends. I'm so happy to know that it was made by such a good person. Your hard work inspires me!

Thank you,
Mira :)

Thank you so much for making me a hat! You did a really good job making it.
I purchased "the brady" in grey. It looks like the same one you are wearing in your picture!
Every time I look at your name on the inside of my hat I will pray for you and your family!

Thank you and God bless you Aida!
