Often, a lot of successful business owners stumble into their big idea just by doing the things they love. That’s exactly how young mom Eraiza Ramos found her way into her home business. In 2019, sometime after having her baby while she was still a college student, she started Eleira’s Crochet. “Ginawa ko siya para merong masuot ang baby ko every month,” shared Eraiza, who started by making her baby cute costumes, small dolls, and plushies.

Eraiza is a self-professed enthusiast for arts and crafts. She has been interested in learning to make things by hand since her grade school days. She says she enjoys painting, drawing, and generally being creative.

“Nakita ko ‘yung ibang parents na nagcecelebrate ng monthly milestones ng baby nila,” she continued. “Kaya nag-decide po ako na gawin din sya para sa baby ko, nag search ako ng magandang outfit, and doon ko nakita yung crochet baby costumes. After makabili ako ng dalawang crochet costumes, hindi na kinaya ng budget ko na makabili ulit for the following months, kaya nag-decide ako na aralin na lang kung paano mag crochet para gagawan ko nalang si baby ko ng outfit nya.

“Tapos habang pinopost ko yung pictures ng baby ko every month on Facebook, nakikita siya ng mga ibang mommies at ng ibang mga friends nila sa Facebook, kaya dumami nang dumami ‘yung mga nagpapagawa,” she continued.

Now, Eraiza has managed to crochet so many products that her house is nearly flooded with all of her crocheted creations.

The whole hustle of Eleira’s Crochet was fully inspired by her baby, who’s now five years old. It’s safe to say that without her little bundle of joy, none of this would have happened at all. She wouldn’t have learned how to crochet, she wouldn’t have made anything, and she would not have had a home business to help her provide for her family.

“Kaya ako nag-aral mag-crochet, dahil sa baby ko,” she said.

Today, Eraiza is happy to say that the income she makes from Eleira’s Crochet is enough to cover for her needs, even if it’s her only “raket.” Her next dream for the business is to grow it by starting a rental service of her crocheted baby costumes to other parents, especially those who couldn’t afford to buy new ones every month. Growing the business would help her to earn more, especially now that her baby needs physical therapy to learn how to walk.

Eraiza’s ingenuity and tenacity to start her home-based business and make it successful is what got her recognized at the Gawad Madiskarte 2023, an annual awards event that honors the best Madiskarte Moms. She won this year’s Start Up Diskarteng Digital Award, which goes to the mompreneur who’s able to make their home business grow and succeed online.
