Opportunity International Client Blanca Maldonado

Hardworking grandmother and entrepreneur, Blanca Moldonado lives in Cucuta, Colombia with her husband and grandson. For many years, Blanca has managed a grocery store to provide a variety of snack foods and grocery items to her community members. It hasn’t been easy for her family, and there was a time when Blanca was not able to afford to meet the daily needs of her grandson. Everything began to change for Blanca when a friend introduced her to Opportunity International. Blanca received financial training and a loan to invest in her shop and purchase inventory in bulk. With more grocery items to sell and a greater diversity of products, she was able to attract new customers and increase her sales. One day, Blanca dreams of saving up enough to take her family on vacation. Thanks to the loan she received, Blanca will be able to save for her grandson’s education and 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.
