Opportunity International Client Milly Legi

Milly Legi lives in the city of Kakoge, Uganda, with her six children. A widow, Milly works hard to provide for her large family on a single income. For many years, she has sold charcoal in the city's large trading center. However, much of Milly's profits were going towards paying for basic necessities and school fees for her children, which left nothing to grow her business. She knew that something needed to change if she was ever going to become financially stable. When Milly heard an advertisement on the radio for Opportunity International, she knew she had found the solution to her dilemma. Milly was excited to hear about the financial training and loan she could receive to invest in growing her business. Immediately, she began purchasing her inventory of charcoal in bulk at a lower cost, which allowed her to sell to more customers each week. Milly was also able to hire an employee to help her sell her charcoal in more markets. She is grateful that her business is growing day by day and now has no trouble paying her children's school fees on time. Milly looks forward to receiving her next loan, which will allow her to construct a permanent building for her business so that she doesn't have to trek from market to market. Her dream is to save up enough money to build a house for her family someday.

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.
