Opportunity International Client Abena Boatemaa

Abena is an entrepreneur and mother of four who lives with her husband and children in Awaso, Ghana. Abena started a business selling toiletry products to contribute to her family's income. However, she wasn't earning a sufficient income, and her business was struggling without investment capital to grow it. A friend of Abena introduced her to Opportunity International and encouraged her to join the organization. Abena agreed, and after she completed financial literacy training, she received her first loan, which she used to hire two employees. With a much higher sales capacity, Abena's business is booming. Her sales have grown, and she's increased her profit margin. Abena's success ensures that her children are well cared for and have access to quality education. Abena's dream is to own a storefront where she can sell her toiletry products at wholesale prices.

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.
