Opportunity International Client Nuru Namwanje

Nuru Namwanje is a single mother with three children and lives in Kalisizo, Uganda. To make a living, Nuru cooks food for motorcycle riders in her village. Her biggest challenge in this business has been making enough money to move into a permanent location. She knew that to generate more income and to expand her business and support her family, she needed a little extra help. When Nuru heard about Opportunity International from her friend, she knew she had found something that could change her life for the better. Nuru joined Opportunity and took out a loan. She invested the loan in renting her own space to operate from and purchasing nicer cooking utensils. Ever since Nuru took out a loan with Opportunity, her business has continued to grow consistently. Nuru feels that this is because she has plenty of food to sell, and her knew utensils help to create a sense of professionalism that draws in customers. With her newfound income, Nuru is able to pay for rent, provide for her family, and pay her children's school fees. Nuru's future dream is to expand her business even more and build a place to run her business out of so that she doesn't have to continue renting.

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.
