Felister Chiwaya's story

Felister is a 24-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her husband in the Zomba district in Malawi. She was elected as district Vice Chairperson for the CAMFED Association in her district.

Felister raises broiler chickens and purchases and sells peanut butter. With her first Kiva loan, Felister increased the size and range of her stock. She used the profit she earned to buy basic necessities for her family, support her brother, and support needy people in her community.

She is requesting a second loan in order to buy more chickens to meet her community’s demand. She plans to use the profit she earns to support her family's basic needs and pay school fees for her brother.

Felister will repay the ‘social interest’ on her second loan by volunteering 2.5 hours per week as a CAMFED Alumnae Executive, supporting the CAMFED association
