Opportunity International Client Idi Alhassan

Idi Alhassan is a hardworking husband and father who lives with his wife and their four children in Koforidua, Ghana. For over 30 years, Idi has worked as a yam and cereal vendor to earn a living and provide for his family. Each day, he sells his supplies of yams, grains and dried goods to food vendors, retailers and customers in the busy commercial center in his community. Despite his three decades of business experience, Idi struggled to support his family, especially when paying his children's school fees.

Everything began to change when Idi joined Opportunity International. He received financial training and a loan, which he used to purchase stock in bulk. With larger supplies of yams and wider varieties of cereals to sell, Idi has been able to meet more of his customers' needs, sell to more retailers and drive his profits higher than ever before.

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.
