Opportunity International Client Claudine MUKASHEMA

Claudine Mukashema lives in the city of Kimironko, Rwanda, with her husband and three young children. To help support her family financially, Claudine has been running a stationery shop for many years. However, as her children grew, so did the family’s expenses. Claudine wanted to expand her shop to attract more customers, but with a tight family budget, she wasn’t sure where to get the financial means to do so. Claudine found the answer to her dilemma when she heard about the loan and valuable financial training she could receive from Opportunity International. With her loan, she was able to expand her shop inventory to include more books and pens as well as a photocopying machine for her customers to use. This growth grew her customer base, and Claudine was even able to afford to buy a house for her family with her business profits. She is excited for the future and hopes that she can purchase a motorcycle to use for transportation and deliveries.

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.
