Opportunity International Client Jalia Nabirye

Jalia Nabirye is a single mother of 7 children, living in Uganda. She rears chickens for a living in addition to selling tomatoes, onions, and cooking oil from her home. Despite both businesses, Jalia struggled to pay school fees for her children. She knew she needed to grow her ventures in order to support her family, but with such small capital, she didn't know if it was possible. Then she heard about Opportunity International on the television and she knew it was the perfect solution. Jalia requested a loan and plans to build a permanent structure for her shop and raise more chicken. She is hopeful with a growing business she will be able to afford her children's school fees and their everyday expenses.

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.
