Opportunity International Client Agnes Nabukalo

Agnes Nabukalo is an entrepreneur and mother who lives in Wakiso, Uganda, with her husband, Sekikubi Hamed, and their four children. For the past few years, Agnes has owned and operated a beauty salon where she provides hair and makeup services to women in her community. She loves being able to make her clients feel beautiful and encourage a boost of self-confidence, but it hasn’t been easy for Agnes, despite her hard work and caring heart. There was a time she worried she would not be able to keep her children in school. Everything began to change for Agnes when a friend introduced her to Opportunity International. Agnes received financial training and a loan to invest in her business. With her loan, Agnes was able to purchase supplies for her store, like braids, hair care products, and more cosmetics. With more services and products to offer, Agnes was able to attract more customers and increase her profit margin. Combined with her hard work and dedication, Agnes’ loan allowed her to grow her businesses so much that she was able to hire two employees to help her keep up with the demand. Agnes's future dream is to become the best service provider in the area.

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.
