Opportunity International Client Shilla Museme

Shilla Museme lives with her husband and six children in Uganda. Since her husband is currently unemployed, Shilla's job selling women's clothing is the main source of income for the family. She sells in the market and from her home when the market is closed. The budget was tight and Shelia worried about paying her children's school fees on top of the family's day to day expenses. She heard about Opportunity International at her church and applied for a loan. She plans to buy additional products for her store so she can attract more customers and hopefully increase her sales. With this business growth, Shilla will be able to feed her family, pay her children's school fees, and begin saving for the future. Shilla dreams one day she will grow her business into a wholesale shop.

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.
