Opportunity International Client Josefa Hernandez

Josefa is a strong woman living in Carmen de Bolivar, Colombia, with her two children and her husband. Her biggest challenge was to support her children by herself while her husband was sick a few years ago. Fortunately, now he is healthy and currently, both of them are working. Josefa has a grocery store where she sells a wide variety of products. One of her goals was to sell meats and chicken as she already had a freezer; however, she didn’t have the capital to purchase stock. Josefa´s sister told her about Opportunity International and the chance to get a loan and Josefa thought that it was exactly what she was looking for. Josefa received a loan that she used to expand her business by purchasing meat and other products to stock the store. As her sales have increased, she is happy to have more available for her customers. Josefa is thankful to spend time with her family and be less stressed about work. She dreams of traveling with her family and continuing to expand her business and improve their quality of life.

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.
