Opportunity International Client Erlinda Tamayo

Erlinda Tamayo is married to Marvel and they are blessed with five children. They live in Pangasinan, Philippines. Just like many Filipino families, Erlinda has endured a difficult life. She is always faced with financial burden due to low income and lack of sustainable business. Erlinda wanted to expand her store but she did not have enough money after supporting her family's needs. Erlinda learned about Opportunity International and received a loan to purchase additional products to sell in her retail store. She wants to expand her business so she can better provide for her family's needs and other household expenses. She hopes by adding more merchandise in her store, she will attract more customers and increase her income. Erlinda wants to start saving and make other investments for their future.

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.
