Before joining KK Peru, Maria was unemployed. Her family was required to live off of her husband's salary. Wanting to help provide for her children, she began looking for job opportunities in the Lima area. Since joining KK Peru, Maria is now able to support her family. She is excited about learning to knit and how to start her own business in the future.

    Maria, I received an AMOR beanie, exactly like the one you are holding in the photo. I cant help but assume it says Amor because it was made with love and your two hands. Its cozy and warm and perfect, and I’m thankful for you and your family. It will accompany me around the world, maybe to Peru some day!

    Dear Maria,

    Thank you so much for my beautiful weekender bag. I have recently started buying only ethically made clothes and products, and this was my first big purchase that I saved up my money for! I am a student and I work part time, so I have to budget, however buying from places like Krochetkids and knowing that beautiful people like you have made the items makes it all worth it for me! I also want to start my own fashion chain like you do. I wish you all the best with your dreams and I hope your family are well. Thank you so much Maria. I am in love with the bag- you are an incredible seamstress!

    Love Kate
