This holiday season, as you hunt for the perfect gift, consider giving friends, family and co-workers an Opportunity Gift Card to bring hope and opportunity to clients like Patience Dameh of Ghana (right). Your friends can use Opportunity Gift Cards to empower some of the millions of clients around the world like Patience who use Opportunity International loans and financial services to grow their businesses, employ their neighbors and feed their children.
Patience Dameh owns of one of the most vibrant stalls in Ada’s Kasseh Market, featuring hundreds of traditional Ghanaian fabrics. She also owns a grocery store called “With God All Things Are Possible” in the next village over, where she and her three children live. When Patience became an Opportunity client in 2011, she used her loan to expand her store, buy more goods in bulk at a better price, and increase her monthly income and savings. Today, she employs several people from her community, including her adult son. With her second loan, Patience hopes to build and rent stores to other traders. She dreams of the day when Opportunity Ghana will lease space from her to open a bank branch in her community.
Patience is one of the more than four million clients worldwide who use Opportunity’s microfinance services, including access to savings, loans, insurance and training, to expand businesses, provide for their families, create jobs for their neighbors, and build a safety net for the future.
