Felistus's story

Felistus is a 19-year-old resident of the Mt. Darwin District of Zimbabwe. She volunteers as a Camfed Learner Guide and in that role she focuses on teaching life skills to high school students. In addition, she rents a table at the local flea market to sell products such as bags, shoes, jeans, shirts, skirts, track suits, and t-shirts. She has been running this business for the past year and it has enabled her to support her family. With this Kiva loan, Felistus will increase her supplies by buying larger amounts of products. Her hope is to grow the business and open her own store. This will bring stability to her business and will enable her to change the status of her family and improve their financial stability.
