Opportunity International Client Salamatu Draman

husband and three children. To help support their family, Salamatu sells second-hand clothing to her neighbors in her village while her husband works on a cashew farm. Even with both of their incomes, Salamatu and her husband struggled to afford all of their family's basic necessities. Because of her limited inventory of clothing, Salamatu was not able to attract enough customers to grow her business and increase her profits. She knew she needed some support if her family was ever going to become financially stable. Salamatu was encouraged when a friend told her about the loan and financial training she could receive from Opportunity International. With her loan, Salamatu was finally able to purchase a wider variety of clothing. This immediately attracted new customers to her business, and Salamatu was excited to see immediate growth in her profits. Since receiving her loan, Salamatu has said that her family's standard of living has greatly improved. She is excited to request her next loan to keep expanding her business so that she can build a house 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.
