Opportunity International Client Alphonsine MUKAMFIZI

Alphonsine Mukamfizi lives with her husband and six children in the city of Kicukiro, Rwanda. For many years, Alphonsine has owned and operated a business selling stones in her community as a way to support her large family. However, as Alphonsine’s children grew, she found that her small business income was barely enough to support all of the family’s daily needs. She knew that she needed to find a way to grow her business so that her family could become more financially stable. Alphonsine saw the solution to her dilemma when she heard about the loan and financial training she could receive from Opportunity International. With her loan, she plans on hiring employees so that she can increase her stone production. With more inventory to sell, Alphonsine will finally be able to provide stones to more customers in her area. She looks forward to continuing to grow her business and using some profits to purchase a cow for her family’s land.

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.
