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
With a donation of $150, you can help another just like Jairo to break the cycle of poverty, once and for all. You'll be investing in an effective and lasting solution to poverty - it's as simple as that!
You see, our clients are not charity cases. They can build businesses. They can provide for their family. They can lead. And we empower them by investing in their individual God-given talents.
But none of this is possible without you!
Gift That Keeps Giving
Unlike a typical charity, your donation benefits multiple people for many years to come. When the loan you helped fund is repaid, that money is lent out to other entrepreneurs, and again and again. It’s about believing in the people we help.
It’s a sustainable model that helps to lift people out of poverty in a real and permanent way. It’s about investing in opportunity.
Join us as we together reimagine missions – to love and serve those living in poverty with a Christ-centered solution to reach families in the developing world through our actions and the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Donate $150 today and help fund an aspiring entrepreneur!

For a limited time, if you donate to Opportunity, we’ll send you a free copy of a life-changing book called Unpoverty: Rich Lessons from the Working Poor. This book is full of inspirational stories about people who are defying the odds and defeating poverty. And we’ll send you the book with our gratitude…because your donation is creating momentum for driven, courageous people. You’ll be giving someone living in poverty a chance to better a better life and care for his family.
Your support will help
By contributing to Opportunity's Global Microfinance Initiative, you are helping to expand access to financial services to enable more people in 27 countries to secure savings, borrow capital for their businesses, receive training to develop professional and life skills, and to purchase insurance to protect their assets. With three billion people living on less than $2 a day around the world, our mission is to empower people to work their way out of chronic poverty, transforming their lives, their children's futures and their communities.
