Opportunity International Client Jonas NIYONSENGA

Jonas Niyonsegna lives in Kimironko, Rwanda, with his wife and their three children, aged three to six. Their oldest child attends school. To support his family, Jonas works as a motorcycle taxi driver. He has operated his own taxi business for the past two years, but his motorcycle needed repairs. Jonas wanted to expand his business but didn’t have the capital he needed to repair his motorcycle, let alone expand his business. Jonas found the solution to his business troubles when he learned about Opportunity International. After completing financial literacy training, Jonas received his first loan, which he used to buy a new motorcycle. The small financial boost helped Jonas to expand his business. His next dream is to buy a house.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do entrepreneurs become Opportunity International loan clients?

Opportunity International conducts interviews with prospective clients to get a better understanding of their situation, so we can construct a loan that’s tailored to their needs and capabilities.

If I help fund a loan, should I expect to be paid back?

When you help to fund a loan, you are making a donation to Opportunity International. When those funds are repaid by the client, the funds remain in the country where the original client’s loan was disbursed, so that it can help fund more loans. Your initial gift continues to have an impact after the first loan is repaid.
