Mifuko artisan - Felister

Felister is many things besides a talented basket weaver: a tailor, a singer and a generous mother admired for her kindness, big heart and hard-working spirit. During her free time she enjoys making clothes for her children to sharpen her skills and to relax. She looks up to a tailor in her village named Rhoda Mathuku, who is known for her tailoring skills. Felister is a talented singer, and sings in her local church choir. Her favorite colors are green and yellow. She tells us her favorite meal is Githeri, which is a mixture of fried beans and maize. She aims to become a strong business woman in the future, and wants to start a hardware business soon from the income she is earning from Mifuko.
