Opportunity International Client Zalia  Shaibu

Zalia Shaibu lives with her husband and four children in the Ashanti region of Ghana. Her husband sells used bicycles to help provide for them, but this income has not been enough to support their family's needs. With her family struggling to get by and with the challenge she and her husband faced to pay her children's school fees, Zalia decided to take action. After many attempts of unsuccessful businesses, Zalia became frustrated and nearly gave up. But one night, Zalia dreamed of the business she was destined to pursue—a business selling fish powder and hot sauce. With her business idea in full swing, all Zalia needed was the money to fund it. This is when Zalia found Opportunity International. With a loan from Opportunity, Zalia was able to start her business and help her husband in supporting their family. Her dream is to open her own shop to increase her business exposure and make it easier for customers to purchase her products.

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.
