Opportunity International Client Grace Nabale

Grace Nabale is a devoted mother and entrepreneur who lives in Nsumbi, Uganda, with her husband, Iga Erick, and their four children. For the past few years, Grace has owned and operated a second-hand clothing business out of her home where she sources and sells gently-used clothes to people in her community. The greatest demand comes during festival season, but Grace works tirelessly to appeal to her customers’ tastes year-round. Despite her time and effort, it hasn’t been easy for a Grace. There was even a time when she worried she would not be able to pay her children’s school fees. Everything began to change when a friend encouraged Grace to join Opportunity International. After joining, Grace received financial training and a loan to purchase second-hand clothes in bulk. With more clothes to sell, Grace was able to attract new customers and increase her sales. Down the line, Grace dreams of continuing to expand her business by moving her shop from her home to a boutique in town. Thanks to the loan she received, Grace will be able to save up for her store and ensure her children receive the best education possible.

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.
