Opportunity International Client Berne KARUNGI

Berne Karungi lives in Kicukiro, Rwanda, with her three school-aged children. As the owner of a restaurant, Berne works hard but still finds it challenging to make enough money to pay for her children’s education while also supporting her business and paying for their daily needs. Because of the struggle she faces supporting her family and paying her children’s school fees, Berne decided to reach out to Opportunity for a loan. With the loan, Berne would like to buy more bananas, potatoes, and Fanta for her restaurant. She is hopeful this investment will help improve her restaurant offerings, increase her sales, and enable her to pay her children’s school fees and better support them in their education. Berne also plans to use some of her profits from the restaurant will be used to expand the business and increase savings.

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.
