Opportunity International Client Ruth Nangobi

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.

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.
