Opportunity International Client Rose Nakachwa

Rose Nakachwa is a hard-working mother of four children and lives in the city of Kiruwooza, Uganda, with her husband and family. For many years, she has operated a retail shop in her community, selling various products and goods to her neighbors. However, Rose experienced a lot of competition with other shops in her neighborhood and struggled to keep her customers. Her family began to struggle financially as they tried to keep up with affording all of the children’s school fees. Rose knew something needed to change if she was going to be able to keep her business open as well as pay for the education of her children. When Rose saw an advertisement for Opportunity International on television, she knew she had found a potential solution for her business. She received valuable financial training and a loan, which allowed her to pay all of her children’s school fees outright. This meant that Rose could invest all of her business profits into expanding her business. Rose began purchasing items and merchandise that no other store in town was selling in bulk. This attracted more customers to her shop and greatly increased her sales. Rose is grateful that her business is no longer in danger of closing, and dreams of becoming a wholesaler in her community in the 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.
