From Intern to CEO: A FINCA Leadership Story

Chris Kizza was once an intern, assisting FINCA’s loan officers in Malawi as they helped clients receive loans, make payments and build their businesses.

Today, over a decade later, Chris is the CEO of FINCA Malawi.

Chris’s transformational story is not unlike many of the leaders in FINCA’s network. In fact, FINCA is committed to build a new generation of local leaders, like Chris. These local leaders develop the services and tools that will help millions of hard-working entrepreneurs to improve their lives and their communities.

Already, Chris has led FINCA Malawi to obtain a banking license, enabling thousands of unbanked Malawians to open a savings account to safeguard their income for the future.

“The Chris Kizza story is a FINCA story,” says Samson Mwalungila, the marketing manager at FINCA Malawi, “which is bringing opportunity to everyone.”
