Opportunity International Client Rowena Fernandez

Rowena Fernandez is a hardworking single mother of four children living in Pangasinan, Philippines. Rowena manages a small convenience store to earn money to support and educate her children, but it has been difficult for her due to a lack of money and lack of assistance raising her children. When she heard about an Opportunity International, she knew it was what she had been looking for. Rowena was able to join a Trust Group, where she received valuable financial training and a loan to expand and continue to grow the store. She is saving her income to provide for her children's daily needs and ensure they finish their educations so they can find good jobs and have a better 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.
