Juana Paja


"I've recently joined the beyondBeanie family. I'm very thankful for this opportunity and to be able to show my work to the world."

My dream for the future is to grow a successful business, and to provide jobs to other artisan women of my beloved Bolivia.

In my spare time, I teach crocheting to a group of HIV-infected women at a local rehabilitation center near my house. Nothing inspires me more than to see my pupils convert some yarn into something as beautiful as a beanie or a scarf.

Thanks for believing in the women of Bolivia.

Much love,
