Crossroads Presbyterian Church in Mequon, Wisconsin recognizes the need to love and serve people everywhere. Where dignity is restored, clients are equipped to become agents of their own change, and people are empowered to do what all of us hope to do in our lives: work to earn a livable income and care for our families.
Financial inclusion leads to the end of the poverty cycle in which so many people in the developing world live. Crossroads Presbyterian has been generously supporting Opportunity International since 2009, and has impacted hundreds of clients, their families, and neighbors in the developing world by contributing to Opportunity initiatives.
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!
