Opportunity International Client Giselle TUYISENGE

Giselle, a dedicated mother of three, lives in Kimironko, Rwanda. All three of her children attend school. To pay for their school fees and provide for her family’s other needs, Giselle works as a charcoal vendor. She started her charcoal business 10 years ago and is an experienced entrepreneur, but recently, Giselle decided she wanted to expand her venture. She was able to grow her business through her partnership with Opportunity International. After completing financial literacy training, she received her first loan, which she used to purchase additional charcoal and increase the scale of her business. Giselle’s sales have increased, and she puts the profits toward her children’s education and her savings. In the future, she hopes to continue growing her business.

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.
