Opportunity International Client Joyce Opoku-Boateng

Joyce Opoku-Boateng is a hardworking mother of three who lives in Koforidua, Ghana with her husband and their children. A few years back, Joyce began selling household items along the roadside to customers in and around her community. Despite her hard work, it hasn’t been easy for Joyce and her family; in fact, there was a time when she worried she would not be able to keep her children in school.
Everything began to change when a friend encouraged Joyce to join Opportunity International. Joyce received financial training and a loan to purchase inventory in bulk. With more products to sell and a greater diversity of products, Joyce was able to attract new customers and increase her sales. Thanks to her loan, Joyce can now continue to grow her business, while ensuring her three children receive the best education possible.

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.
