Esther's story

Esther is a 21-year-old entrepreneur who lives with her husband in the Chikwawa district in Malawi. She sells ladies’ shoes and other accessories.

She is requesting a Kiva loan to purchase assorted designs of ladies' shoes such as flats, wedges and block heels, and other accessories such as handbags, cosmetics and other items. She plans to use the profit she earns to support her family and re-invest back into the business.

She will repay the 'social interest' on her loan by volunteering two hours per week as a CAMFED Learner Guide, facilitating classes from CAMFED’s ‘My Better World’ program with students at her local secondary school, helping to build their self-esteem and motivating them to remain in school.
