Opportunity International Client Merliza Cervera

Merliza Cervera is a hardworking entrepreneur who lives in the Philippines with her husband and three school-aged children. For the past few years, Merliza has managed a convenience store providing a variety of grocery items to her neighbors. To make ends meet, her husband works as a driver in their town. It hasn’t been easy for their family, and there was a time when Merliza and her husband were not able to afford to send their children to school. When a friend introduced her to Opportunity international, everything began to change. Merliza received valuable financial training and a loan to invest in her shop and purchase inventory in bulk. With better stocked shelves and a larger diversity of products available, Merliza was able to attract new customers and increase her sales. Thanks to the loan she received, Merliza will be able to save for her daughters’ education and their futures.

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.
