Opportunity International Client Winnie  Birungi

Winnie Birungi lives in the village of Kasubi outside of Kampala, Uganda and owns a restaurant in the market. Winnie’s most significant hurdle is maintaining the sales needed to generate enough income. Winnie heard about Opportunity International from fellow Trust Group members and received a loan that she invested in buying cooking utensils. With more cooking utensils, she could produce more, which led to an increase in customers. Winnie now has one employee that helps her run the restaurant. Her dream is to build a house for her family and move her business to a better location.

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.
