Global Mavericks

Fundraiser Image Angela Panlilio and her husband Rommel work hard every day to support their three school-aged children. A skilled baker, Angela runs a bakery near her home in Pampanga, Philippines. She dreams of sending her kids to college, but she knows that her shop will need to grow in order to afford her children’s future educations. She hopes to partner with Opportunity International to purchase her ingredients in bulk, giving her the ability to grow her business and save for her family’s future

Where Donations Go

In spite of the challenges they face, women worldwide show inspiring resilience and determination to break out of the cycle of poverty. Studies show that when women have access to financial services, they have a significant impact on the quality of life for their families, especially their children. Your gift to Opportunity will empower women to develop new roles as income earners and community leaders. With access to transformational training, and critical financial products such as savings, loans and insurance, women in poverty can build financial security and create stability for their families, often for the first time in their lives. Opportunity operates under a model of sustainable success. Loans are granted. Loans are repaid and loaned again and again. As important, 95% of our loan clients are women and 99% of these loans are repaid in full.
