Agnes attended school as a child, but after the death of her parents, there was no one left to encourage her education. She was left with few options, so she got married at 13. Being a wife at such a young age wasn’t easy, but added to motherhood, it was extremely difficult. Agnes had 9 children and has constantly been looking for a way to provide for them. Agnes shares that one of her greatest accomplishments has been to provide education for those children. She someday plans on opening a fruit business and building a house for her large family.

Thank you SO much Opoka Anges! I LOVE this hat. This is my third hat and I love each one. I wear this one every day to pick up my children from school. It is so soft and warm. I pray you start your fruit business. I will continue to buy these hats and share with friends and family. Blessings to you and your family!

Thank you so much for making my beautiful hat!! It means so much to me. I can't wait to tell all my friends and family and show them what you have made and about your story. I hope they will all buy a hat of their own.

I pray that your hard work and creativity provide for your children education and a home for you and family.

Thank you so much!!
