The goal of this initiative is to empower families with the financial resources and training necessary to work their out of poverty with dignity. A total of $1 million raised will provide microfinance services to benefit over 50,000 people in the Congo, Uganda and Colombia over the next 5 years. The fund-raising effort can expect to achieve the following program results in each country:
• $330,000 establishes a new branch office or significant in a new geographic area
• $30,000 hires a new loan officer and provides the loan funds
• $3,000 funds a Trust Group
Thank you for being a part of this important initiative to end poverty faster.
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!
