Opportunity International Client Ketty Nansubuga

Ketty Nansubuga works hard to provide for her four children in the city of Mbuya, Uganda. But as a single mother, this is not always easy. For five years, she has run a stand selling charcoal at one of the city’s trading centers. However, her business profits were consistently small, and after paying for her children’s daily necessities as well as their school fees, Ketty rarely had any money left over to invest in her business. She worried that her single income would not be enough to support her large family long-term if something didn’t change. Ketty found the solution she had been looking for when she heard from a friend about the loan and financial training she could receive from Opportunity International. With her loan, Ketty began ordering her inventory of charcoal in bulk. She can now serve more customers with a lower initial cost, increasing her profits. Ketty is happy that this business growth has allowed her to comfortably provide for her family’s daily needs, as well as their school fees, with less stress. She dreams of continuing to expand her business, so that she can afford to send all of her children to college.

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.
