Opportunity International Client Susan Celario

Susan Celario lives in Camiling, Philippines with her husband and their two children. While her husband works as a motorbike taxi, Susan works as a packager of candies and edible goods. As her kids grew older and needed less direct care, Susan found herself able to take on more work. Educational costs also became a part of the family budget, and Susan worried about being able to keep up. She knew she needed to apply her greater free time toward her business, but the necessary growth required more supplies and investment capital she didn’t have. Susan wasn’t sure how she would make the transition. When a friend introduced Susan to the programs offered at Opportunity International, her hope began to renew. She received valuable financial training a small loan to invest in her personal business. She applied her loan to help her bridge the gap she needed, purchasing materials that would allow for more output. With the increase in income, she’s better able to meet her children’s needs and is feeling less and less threatened by poverty.

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.
