Opportunity International Client Carine SUGIRA

Carine Sugira lives with her husband in Kicukiro, Rwanda, and makes a living selling small fish to her community. When she became a new mother eight months ago, Carine discovered that her income from her small business, combined with that of her husband, was not going to be enough to support a growing child. Carine knew that she and her husband would also need to start saving immediately for their child’s future school fees, and so she began to look for ways to grow her business. Carine was relieved to learn about Opportunity International and that she could receive valuable financial training and a loan for her business. With her loan, Carine began purchasing more kinds of fish in bulk. This attracted new customers to her stand and increased her profits. With her growing income, Carine can contribute to the family budget and also save for their child's future educational costs. Carine looks forward to continuing to grow her business so that she and her family can have a financially stable future.

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.
