Every dollar invested in Opportunity becomes $6 invested in microenterprises over the course of 5 years.
As loans are repaid, the money is lent to new entrepreneurs again and again, multiplying the impact of each dollar over time. Check out our estimate of your group's collective impact as your donations are recycled and reinvested!
