Overcoming Loss by Helping Others

Jayanthi's husband was killed in a tsunami that struck Chennai, India in 2004. In the aftermath, she struggled to find work to support herself and her two daughters. Opportunity International trained Jayanthi to become a loan officer, helping deliver critical financial services and business training to entrepreneurs in her community. Today, Jayanthi is helping hundreds of clients launch or expand businesses and transform their lives. She is able to take care of her daughters and pay for their school tuition. Jayanthi hopes to become a role model for her daughters by demonstrating what is possible through determination, hard work and perseverance even in the face of life's most difficult challenges.
