Mwayiwawo's story

Mwayiwawo is a 25-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her parents in the Mangochi district in Malawi. She has a shop where she sells assorted grocery items.

With her first Kiva loan, she increased the size of her stock and diversified to selling shoes. She is requesting a second loan to buy more grocery items like powdered soap and eggs to meet customer demand. Mwayiwawo will use the profit she earns to pay for siblings’ school fees and support needy students with school materials.

She will repay the ‘social interest’ on her second loan by volunteering four hours per week as a CAMFED Loan Coordinator, using her expertise to mentor and support fellow CAMA borrowers in her community to complete repayment of their loans. As a Loan Coordinator she has already successfully paid off at least one loan herself, so she understands the opportunities and challenges and is uniquely positioned to help other CAMA members succeed.
