Opportunity International Client Tessie Pillado

Tessie Pillado lives with her husband, Manolo, and two sons in Occidintal Mindoro, Philippines. She works hard to support her family and send her children to school. When she asked her friend about Opportunity International, they encouraged her to join. She was able to receive a loan for her convenience store and is expanding her business. Tessie used her additional income to purchase her own farm and a cow. She has even been able to help her neighbors by loaning them extra money when they are in need. Tessie prays that her business will continue togrow so that she can help more people, especially 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.
