Opportunity International Client Lina María Lizcano

Lina Maria Lizcano is a hardworking mother that lives with her young son in Cúcuta, Colombia. For a living, she works as an Esthetician. Though she loves her work, the long hours and the difficult transportation in her town take away from the time she could be spending with her children. When one of her friends told her about Opportunity International, she knew the loans and services provided was what she needed to improve her situation at work. Lina Maria used her loan to buy a motorcycle for easier transportation to and from work. With less time stuck commuting and spending less money on transportation, she is able to spend time with her son and put her money to use in other ways. Because of her financial training from Opportunity, Lina Maria learned how to save for the future and dreams to one day open her own beauty salon. Lina Maria is working hard to achieve her dreams and provide for 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.
