Opportunity International Client Noralba Echavez

Noralba Echavez is a hardworking mother of three who lives in Cucuta, Colombia with her husband and three children. Several years back, Noralba started a small store to provide a variety of snack foods and grocery items for those in her town. It hasn’t been easy for her family, and there was a time when Noralba was not able to afford to meet the daily needs of her children. Everything began to change for Noralba when a friend introduced her to Opportunity International. Noralba received financial training and a loan to invest in another shop in a part of town with more profit potential. With additional money from the loan, Noralba also purchased 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. Thanks to the loan she received, Noralba will be able to save for her children’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.
