Opportunity International Client Marissa Sanchez

Marissa Sanchez manages a small convenience store in her village in Tarlac, Philippines. She works very hard to fulfill her dreams for her family. Marissa sells a wide variety of groceries products in her convenience store to provide for her family's daily living expenses and give her parents a good life. But Marissa faces many challenges and she struggles to improve her store since she did not have much left over after providing for her family. When Marissa learned about Opportunity, she knew it was the assistance she needed to help her business. She received financial training and a loan to purchase additional inventory in bulk. She hopes expanding her selection will attract more customers and increase her income. Marissa dreams of being a successful entrepreneur and be an example to her neighbors that it is possible to rise out of poverty through hard work and faith.

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.
