As entrepreneurs, we understand how critical opportunity is. We’ve been the recipients of tremendous opportunities -- higher education, travel, our business – and we’ve traveled to countries like Colombia, Mexico, and China and have seen poverty firsthand and the way it devastates communities. We would like to give back out of gratitude, to help our friends overseas lead healthier, happier, longer lives. That’s why we’re partnering with Opportunity International, which offers microfinance tools -- small business loans, savings accounts, insurance and training – to over four million people in more than 20 countries who are working their way out of poverty, and is motivated by Jesus Christ’s call to love and serve the poor. We love the dynamic strategies Opportunity uses, like local staffing, bank building, technological innovations, rural outreach, agricultural finance, and Trust Groups. And Opportunity’s work goes beyond addressing financial poverty -- its economic solutions have a deep ripple effect, impacting a family, neighbors, a community and the local economy. When people have financial opportunity, they have pride and confidence. It’s great to see an organization come up with creative and sustainable solutions to a critically important problem: extreme poverty.
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!
