Opportunity International Client Mary Ann Mina

Mary Ann Mina lives with her husband Angelo and their two children in Cuyapo, Philippines. While her husband works as a farmer, Mary Ann manages a convenience store selling fruits and vegetables in their community to support her family. Despite her hard work, her income was small and there was not enough to provide for her family and invest in her business. The couple found the solution to their business troubles when Mary Ann heard about Opportunity International when she learned about Opportunity International. Mary Ann joined a Trust Group, where she received financial training and a loan to expand the selection of grocery products in her store. Mary Ann hopes that she can sustain all the needs of her family, especially her children's education so that one day they can have a better job.

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.
