Opportunity International Client MARICEL GALFO

Maricel Galfo lives in the Philippines with her husband Arman. Together they started a convenience store in the Minoro Public Market where they sold mainly vegetables due to their small finances. Then, fortunately, a neighbor introduced them to Opportunity International. They used their loan to increase their product selection beyond vegetables and expand their store. Now that their business is growing, they have needed to hire four additional workers! Maricel is thankful for this success and is now planning for the future. She and Arman dream of opening a hardware store as an additional source of income.

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.
