Opportunity International Client Felicia Tenkoranmaa

Hardworking, single mother of three, Felicia Tenkoranmaa lives with her children and husband in Ghana. For the past 25 years, Felicia has owned a dress shop where she sells dresses, fabric, and sewing accessories to women in her community. Felicia travels far to the capital city of Accra to source inventory for her shop. Despite her best efforts, it hasn’t been easy for Felicia; in fact, there was a time when Felicia was at risk of closing her business. Everything began to change when a friend encouraged Felicia to join Opportunity International. Felicia received financial training and a loan to purchase textiles and other sewing accessories in bulk. With more fabric to make dresses, as well as a greater diversity of products available, Felicia was able to attract new customers and increase her sales. Thanks to the loan she received, Felicia will be able to save for her family's future and ensure her children receive the best education possible.

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.
