As a result of extreme poverty, many of Opportunity's clients in Ghana are suffering because of lack of title over their own homes, and capital to improve their living conditions. “Clients try to use their business loans for their homes, and then their business suffers,” says Opportunity Ghana Loan Officer Sylvia Danso Abeam. “It stretches their finances too much. And if they don’t have a good house to live in, they don’t have the security they need in order to manage their businesses well. The two go hand in hand.”
