One out of every two people on this planet struggles to feed and educate their children. When powered by opportunity, they have a chance to work their way out of poverty and transform their lives. For 40 years, Opportunity International has provided the savings, loans, training and insurance that all people need to create a better future for their families and their communities.
About this project
Three out of every four malnourished children in Africa are actually the sons and daughters of farmers, the people who grow the food. It is known as subsistence farming and most African families fall into this category.
We want to engage Central Valley farmers in being the first to kick off a major
Anti-Hunger initiative for Opportunity’s work in Africa. You heard about the challenges that face small-scale subsistence farmers in Africa. You also heard that you can be part of the solution.
With specialized loans, savings, weather insurance, training and access to inputs, seeds and markets, Opportunity aims to make African small-scale farmers succeed. Our vision is to reach remote villages to help subsistence farmers yield a more bountiful harvest for their community.
Your support will help
Your gift to Opportunity will help small-scale farmers move from subsistence to commercial farming so they can feed their families and their communities. Opportunity provides these farmers with affordable, convenient agricultural finance services and the technical assistance they need to grow more food and increase their profits. Our strategy engages with farmers at every level of the value chain—from planting to harvesting to selling crops—to ensure their success.
