Ana first moved to Lima to find a job that would help support her parents who were located in the Andean Highlands. She dropped out of school as a child to provide extra income for her family. She has worked various jobs including housekeeping, selling food on the streets and being a chauffeur. Her favorite part about being at KNOWN SUPPLY is being able to work one job because it allows her more time to be with her family. She is proud that she can now afford to provide for her children’s needs.

“I want to purchase my own home so that I can live alone with my family. I want to educate my children so that they can someday become working professionals.”

“Going out with my children and visiting the parks in Lima.”

“Thanks to everyone for your support! I am making hats with lots of love and dedication.”

THANKYOU ANA! I have just recently found Krochet Kids through my girlfriend and her name is Meredith Spain. This beanie is the most comfortable thing I have ever worn in my life, this beanie is now my favorite of all the ones I have and I am constantly told to stop wearing it at school. I am so proud that I can say I know the person that took the time and cared enough to make me this incredible beanie. I have been so proud of the beanie that I wear it every day and have not missed a day since I got it over a month ago. THANK YOU SO MUCH ANA! YOU HAVE MADE MY WINTER DAYS SO MUCH MORE COMFORTABLE!

Hola Ana! I received my Eisley hat today and it is absolutely beautiful. I recently became aware of Krochet Kids intl. When I visited their website I was very excited to see a Peru project was underway. My husband and I visited Peru in 2006 and were awestruck by the beauty of the landscape, but what made our experience very special was the amazing, kindhearted Peruvians we had the pleasure to meet along the way. Peru holds a special place in my heart and I am so pleased, Ana, to have the opportunity to help you obtain your dreams. Your children are very lucky to have such a determined and dedicated mother. I will proudly wear this hat and smile each time I see your name on the tag inside. I wish all the best for you and hope your dreams come true. Muchas gracias!

The love you have for your family and children is very inspiring. I am also blessed for having a loving family. I hope your dreams come true and that you continue to make awesome beanies for the world. God Bless.
