Opportunity International Client Milly Ssaku Nakito

Milly Ssaku Nakito lives in Kampala, Uganda, where she takes care of her four children as a single mother. For the past seven years, Milly has supported her family by raising chickens, which she sells at the nearby trading center. The business has been challenging to operate, however, because it is difficult for Milly to afford the extra feed and medical treatment the chickens sometimes need. Milly sought a financial partner to help her stabilize her business and grow it to a profitable level. When Milly heard good reports of Opportunity International from her friends, she decided to partner with the organization. After completing financial literacy training, Milly received her first loan. She invested it in purchasing feed and medical treatment for the baby chicks. The loan provided the security Milly needed, and her business is now growing day by day. She no longer stresses about paying her children’s school fees, and her family’s standard of living has improved. Milly dreams of continuing to expand her business so that she can educate her children and give them a good 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.
