Opportunity International Client Mariam Namayingo

Hardworking mother of four, Mariam Namayingo lives in Uganda with her husband, Kasaga, and their four children. For several years, Mariam has owned and operated a poultry business, selling chicken to her neighbors and community members. Each morning, she wakes up early to tend to her chickens and prepare her shop for the day. Despite her hard work, it hasn’t always been easy for Mariam – in fact, there was a time she worried she would not be able to keep her children in school or provide for their daily needs. Everything began to change when Mariam joined Opportunity International. Mariam received financial training and a loan to purchase chicken feed in bulk, along with medicine to treat them when they’re ill. This led to healthier chickens, so Mariam could sell more to her customers and increase her sales. Thanks to the loan she received, Mariam will be able to save up 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.
