Opportunity International Client DELIA DEGONES

Delia Degones lives in Capiz, Philippines, with her husband Ronito and their four children. To provide for her family, Delia decided to open a snack shop. Her sales of homemade and pre-packaged food support her family’s needs. Ronito works as a taxi driver, but despite the couple’s dedication to their jobs, they struggled to earn enough income to provide for all their children’s needs. Everything began to change for Delia and her family when a staff member from Opportunity International encouraged her to join the organization. After completing financial literacy training, Delia received her first loan, which she invested in her business. The loan provided the small financial boost Delia needed to gain momentum in her sales. Now, she’s able to earn enough income to support her family’s needs.

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.
