Opportunity International Client Georgina Bruce-Appiah

Georgina Bruce-Appiah is a 42-year-old mother of four. She lives with her family in a rented apartment in the Eastern Region of Ghana. Her daughters are training to be nurses and her son works as a commercial driver.

Georgina trades used clothing and sells bed sheets. She purchases her inventory from the capital city, and plans to use her loan so that she can buy in bulk and increase her inventory and sales. With fully-stocked shelves, she knows that she'll be able to reach more customers and earn more money for her family. She is eager to improve their 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.
