Opportunity International Client Leony Defensor

Leony Defensor is an avid entrepreneur who has a big dream of success for her business. Every day, she works hard in her convenience store and fish vending business. For she believes that giving her best to her business is the best way of achieving success. She is married with three children, and that is one of her motivators for starting her business. She wants to grow her business and increase her income as she prepares for the future needs of her children, especially for their education. She admits that before joining Opportunity International, she found it hard to maintain her capital due to unstable income and expenses in the family. But she was very thankful that one of her friends introduced her to the organization so that she could have additional capital for her business. She is very happy to say that Opportunity has helped her improve her business. With her loan, she was able to grow her business and provide the needs of her children. Now, she is very confident that she can continue to expand her business 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.
