Shamim heard about Opportunity Bank on the television and took her first loan this year. She used the loan to buy bails of second-hand clothes. Now, Shamim's business is expanding and she is able to provide for her family's basic needs. Her future dream is to expand her business and open up a boutique for ladies.

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.
