Opportunity International Client Comfort Frimpomaa

Comfort Frimpomaa is a hardworking woman who lives with her husband and four children in Ankaase in the Eastern region of Ghana. Comfort’s husband, who is a trader, helps her take care of the children. While her eldest child is learning a trade as an apprentice, her other children are in school--two in Senior High School and the youngest is in Kindergarten. For the past 13 years, Comfort has sold "Waakye"--a local dish made from rice and beans, usually eaten with a spicy stew--by the roadside in her community. Comfort purchases her ingredients, such as rice, beans, oil, and other vegetables, in bulk from a nearby town. Over the years, her business has attracted many customers. She now plans to expand her business by acquiring a loan to purchase more ingredients in bulk. Comfort hopes this will allow her to increase her sales and better provide for her family.

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.
