Opportunity International Client Olga Regina  Ruiz Diaz

Olga is a hard-working, single mother living in Cartagena, Colombia. She struggled to raise and support her four daughters as the owner of a small food cart. Olga’s income from her food cart was sometimes not enough to cover all of her expenses and provide for her family. Eventually, the financial burden became too much, and Olga decided to look for options. One of Olga’s neighbors told her about Opportunity International and invited her to join a Trust Group. She decided to join and take out a loan. Olga used her loan to purchase more products for her cart, in hopes that the increase in inventory would bring in more money.
Olga is happy that she has more economic stability as her sales have increased. This has taken some of the financial burden from her and given her the ability to better support her daughters. She is also grateful that the people in her Trust Group are responsible and love to work as a team. Olga’s dream is to buy a big house for her and her family to create beautiful memories.

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.
