Opportunity International Client Gorreti  Namubiru

Gorreti Namubiru lives in Kalisizo, Uganda. She is married with five children of her own and also takes care of two orphan children. Gorreti is a very hardworking woman, owning three businesses—she is a commercial farmer specializing in coffee and bananas, owner of a bar, and owner of a retail shop. Though being an owner and operator of these businesses, Goretti struggles to make ends meet. Her business as a farmer can be difficult with unreliable rainfall, and the high expense of pesticides for her crops. Goretti heard about Opportunity from her friends, who suggested she reach out to learn more. She invested half of her loan in school fees for her children, and the other half in buying pesticide for spraying her garden. With this improvement in her farming business, she has more time to devote to her retail shop and bar, which have also begun to improve. Goretti has a dream to buy a motorcycle that she can use for better transportation to and from the farm.

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.
