Invest & Empower

Start an Opportunity International Fundraiser During the summer of 2009, I had the chance to visit Honduras with Opportunity International. Seeing first-hand the work that they do was something I will take with me for the rest of my life. This is a cause I feel passionate about as they truly embody their values of Commitment, Humility, Respect, Integrity, Stewardship & Transformation. They change lives, families and communities - and it becomes a lasting change. I was fortunate enough to receive a lottery entrance into the 2016 Chicago Marathon this year. I plan to train hard & run my best come October 9th and love the idea of introducing my friends and family to an organization close to my heart at the same time. If you are in a position that allows for it, please consider investing in this incredible organization and empowering women across the globe!

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, 94% of our loans go to women and 98% of these loans are repaid in full.
