Opportunity International Client CLARISSA MAY MIRANO

Clarissa May Mirano works hard to provide for her three children in Del Carmen, Philippines. But as a single mother, this is not always easy. Clarissa ran her own business for many years, but when one of her children needed an operation, she used all of her savings and business capital to afford the medical fees. After her child recovered, Clarissa had nothing left to re-start her business. Devastated, Clarissa was at a loss about how she was going to afford any of her family’s daily expenses. Everything changed for Clarissa when she heard about the loan and financial training she could receive from Opportunity International. With her loan, she was able to rebuild all of her inventory from her previous shop. She was also able to purchase a wider variety of merchandise to stock her shelves. This attracted new customers to her store and has increased her sales. Clarissa is very thankful that Opportunity International helped her to rebuild her life, and she is excited to continue to expand her business in the future.

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.
