Opportunity International Client Cynthia Calicdan

Cynthia Calicdan lives in Poblacion Alaminos City, in the Philippines with her husband Wenceslao and their three children. For several years, she managed a fish vending stall at the market. Despite her hard work, Cynthia faced many financial challenges due to her small income and lack of capital. Everything began to change when Cynthia joined Opportunity International. She joined a Trust Group where she received valuable financial training and a loan to expand her business to make it more profitable. She hopes that her business will grow so she will be able to send her children to school to have a good education and give them a better future out of poverty.

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.
