Opportunity International Client Gima Natoc

Gima Natoc manages a bakery in Mangatarem, Philippines where she lives with her husband and their three children. For several years, Gima has woken up early to prepare all the needs and ingredients for her baking. Her husband has helped her grow her business, which is the main source of income for the family, but they struggled to expand due to lack of capital. Everything began to change when she learned about Opportunity International through one of her friends who encouraged her to join a trust group. Gima received a loan to buy additional ingredients to make different kinds of breads. She hopes to continue to grow her business so that she can ensure her children's education and prepare them for a better life.

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.
