Opportunity International Client Adyaris Gutiérrez

Adyaris Gutiérrez, a single mother who lives in Montería, Colombia with her fourteen and seven-year-old children, is a hardworking woman devoted to the child daycare she runs in her own house and to her community. In her free time, Adyaris does social work, volunteering in educational programs for women. When Adyaris first heard about Opportunity International, she was selling ice cream on the street dreaming of opening a child daycare. It was not easy to make this change immediately, so at first Adyaris joined a trust group loan and used the loan amount to buy more ice cream. After a couple of loan renewals, Adyaris had achieved an impeccable payment record, becoming eligible for a Roof and Floor loan, which she used to build a tiled bathroom in her house and to properly install a sewage system for her house. This way she complied with the only government requisite she was missing to open a daycare home. Adyaris is committed to responsibly paying her loans, so as to be able to keep using them to achieve the financial, educational, and personal growth she dreams of.

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.
