Ruth Nangobi is a widowed mother of six living in Uganda. For many years, Ruth has sold second-hand clothes in local markets. Despite her hard work, her business was struggling and Ruth knew she needed financial assistance. Ruth learned about Opportunity International from neighbors who also had loans with Opportunity. She plans to use her loan to invest in her business by building a more permanent structure to sell her clothing. Ruth is hopeful this will strengthen her business by attracting additional customers and increasing her income. She dreams of sending her children to school and building a home for her family so they no longer have to rent.
