Opportunity International Client Melani Parazo

Melani Parazo is an entrepreneur from the Philippines. She is married and has two children. Melani’s business is selling different kinds of soap and beauty products in her town. Even with income from her husband’s work as a farmer, their combined income cannot meet the daily needs of their family. When her friend encouraged Melani to join Opportunity International, she knew she found the perfect partner. Melani became part of a Trust Group, where she received a loan and financial training. She used her loan to buy more items to sell to better meet the demands of her customers. Melani wants to save enough money to one day invest in other types of business and earn more income 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.
