Opportunity International Client ROWENA MERIN

Rowena Merin is a dedicated mother living in the Philippines. She owns and operates a convenience store and food vending business, but her income was not enough to provide for the needs of her family. Some neighbors introduced Rowena to the programs and financial assistance offered by Opportunity International, so she applied for and received a loan. She invested her borrowed money into her convenience store and food vending business, improving her businesses and increasing her profits. Like every good mother, Rowena was concerned about her inability to provide for her children’s needs, especially their education. But thanks to her loan from Opportunity, Rowena’s businesses are experiencing success and her dream of providing her children with an education has come true. She is very thankful to God for blessing her with Opportunity International’s partnership and plans to use her current loan to further improve her businesses and support her family.

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.
