Opportunity International Client Mamunatu Issah

Mamunatu Issah lives with her husband and ten children in Bayerebon, Ghana. Mamunatu is well-known in her community as a fabulous cook. Every morning, she cooks “kenkey,” a type of dumpling, to sell outside her home. Her dumplings were so popular that Mamunatu couldn’t keep up with her customers’ demands. She needed a way to expand her business, but she didn’t have enough investment capital since all her income went to family expenses. Mamunatu’s friend recommended she resolve her business troubles by partnering with Opportunity International. After completing financial literacy training, Mamunatu received her first loan, which she used to purchase maize in bulk. With a more efficient supply of her main ingredient, Mamunatu is saving money on supply costs, and she’s created a more streamlined business. She’s increased her production capabilities and is making more sales than ever before. She says her partnership with Opportunity has been a great help to both her business and family. Mamunatu says that the difficulty she used to experience in providing for her family’s needs is now “a thing of the past.” Looking forward, Mamunatu plans to expand her business further and save money toward her children’s education. She wants them to achieve their dream careers.

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.
