Opportunity International Client Esther Saray Beltran Ortega

Esther is a young entrepreneur that lives in Cucuta, Colombia with her parents and her youngest siblings. She is studying agricultural engineering, and she also works preparing and selling hayacas, a traditional snack. Her mother told her about Opportunity International as she was already a client and Esther thought that partnering with Opportunity could improve her business. She received a loan that she used to buy a new fridge because the old one was damaged. After her investment, she has been able to keep more products, and she started to sell her hayacas in two bakeries from the neighborhood. She is happy that more people know about her product and she is gaining recognition in the community. Esther dreams of opening a big factory and distributing her product to all the bakeries in town. She also dreams of continuing her studies and supporting her family.

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.
