Opportunity International Client Resty  Nakirangwa

Resty Nakirangwa is a single mother with four children living in Kalisizo, Uganda. To make a living and help support her family, Resty owns and operates a bar in the Kalisizo trading center. Her biggest challenge in this business is the ability to pay taxes at the end of the year. Resty heard about Opportunity International from her friends and thought it could be the partnership she needed to keep her business afloat. She invested the loan in her business, which has doubled her sales and made it possible to hire her first employee. With the increased profits resulting from her loan, Resty was able to start the construction of a house for her family. She is also able to pay school fees for her children and provide for their basic needs–something she struggled with for so long. She is looking forward to finishing the construction of her family house and providing a safe and comfortable place for her children to grow up.

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.
