Opportunity International Client Sarah Nakagolo

Sarah Nakagolo is a single mother of two living in Kalisizo, Uganda. She cooks and sells food for a living, and works hard to support her family on her own. Since a lot of her community also struggles financially, Sarah will let customers pay her back for food. However, sometimes, they take a long time to pay, and that leaves Sarah in a difficult financial spot. When Sarah heard about Opportunity International from her friends, she joined and took out a loan, which she invested in new utensils for her business. With new utensils for cooking, Sarah has been able to cook more efficiently and successfully. Her profits have increased, and she has even been able to hire one employee. Sarah has also been able to finish the construction of her house and send her children to school. With a loan from Opportunity, Sarah's life has changed for the better, and she hopes to continue to be able to support her family the way she has always wanted.

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.
