Opportunity International Client BRENDA CULPA

Hardworking mother and entrepreneur, Brenda Culpa lives with her daughter in the Philippines. For the past 20 years, Brenda has owned a furniture company where she creates and sells bamboo furniture to people in her community. She works hard to ensure her customers are satisfied with her furniture, often working long hours and long days. Despite her best efforts, it hasn’t been easy for Brenda. There was even a time when Brenda was at risk of closing her business. Everything began to change when a friend encouraged Brenda to join Opportunity International. Brenda received financial training and a loan to purchase bamboo in bulk. With a large purchase of raw materials at a lower cost, Brenda was able to make more furniture pieces to sell to a broader customer base, ultimately increase her sales. Thanks to the loan she received, Brenda will be able to save up and ensure her daughter receives 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.
