George Woode

City: Cape Coast Country: Ghana Loan Use: To buy hardware
Loan Term: 32 Date Posted: Jun. 06, 2016 First Repayment: Jun. 10, 2016
Opportunity International Client George Woode

George Woode lives with his wife and their four children in Cape Coast, Ghana where he has run a construction supply business for the last five years. He frequently travels to Accra to purchase bags of cement, roofing sheets and other building materials to sell by the roadside in his community. Although he had many customers, George struggled to keep up with customer demand and to earn enough to pay all of his children’s school fees.

George recently joined Opportunity International, and he plans on using his loan to purchase supplies in bulk, which will help him sell to more customers and increase his profits. He hopes that his business will continue to grow so he can save for his children’s futures and give his family a better quality of life.

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.
