Today on Father’s Day, it’s the perfect opportunity to celebrate the responsible, caring men all over the world who work hard to support their families and the people of their community.
Meet Godwin Ocolo, a 30-year-old Opportunity International client from the city of Koforidua, Ghana. Godwin is married and the father of two children. To support his family and help pay for his children’s education, Godwin has a small shop where he sells and repairs electronics. In order to keep his shop stocked with the goods his clients want, he sought a loan from Opportunity Ghana in 2010. Godwin is full of ambition and wants to grow his business. He is using his loan to increase his inventory of supplies, and in the future, he’d like to save more of his profits so that he can expand the shop to include even more products.
To all of the fathers around the world like Godwin who work hard every day to create a better life for their families, we wish you a very Happy Father’s Day.
