Opportunity International Client Ingrid Marquez

Ingrid is a hardworking entrepreneur living in Carmen de Bolivar with her 15-year-old son and her husband. She does all she can to provide for her son but has struggled to support his daily needs and education. Her biggest business challenge was opening her own beauty salon. Nevertheless, with effort and hard work, she made it possible. Despite her hard work, sometimes her earnings were not enough to provide for her family, but when a friend introduced her to Opportunity International, she knew she found the solution she needed. With financial training and a loan to restock her beauty supplies, Ingrid's business is growing. Her clients are happier since Ingrid has added better products, and she can now pay her employees without stress. Ingrid is happy that she can support her son and is grateful for the independence she has thanks to her business success. She dreams of becoming the most recognized salon in her community so she can support her family and her neighbors.

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.
