Opportunity International Client Justine Namulawa

Justine Namulawa is a single mother of three who lives in Bujuko, Uganda. To provide for her family, Justine is a cook in the Bujuko Trading Center. She also sells charcoal and operates a retail store. Her biggest challenge in these businesses is generating enough profit for expansion. Justine also operates her businesses in an open space, so during the rainy season, she struggles to stay dry and maintain her sales. Justine learned about Opportunity International from a friend, who shared their success with Justine, saying Opportunity International had helped them obtain a loan when no other bank would. Justine joined Opportunity and received a loan to invest in her business. Her businesses have since grown, and she has been able to hire one employee to help her with day-to-day needs. With this loan, Justine can pay her children's school fees and provide for their basic needs without worry. Justine has the education to be a nurse, so her future dream is to open up a clinic to help people in her community.

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.
