Invest in Leaders

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 45 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

To reach the nearly two billion people who lack access to banking and financial services, capable, dedicated local microfinance leaders are needed around the world. Yet often these professionals lack the opportunity to develop leadership skills, so potential is lost and communities suffer.

Opportunity invests in its teams, building up the capacity of loan officers and local staff so that they can better serve those working their way out of poverty. Through customized tools and training such as the Opportunity Learning Center, the Pathways for Leadership Development curriculum and personalized training plans for future Opportunity leaders, we are committed to providing high-quality leadership development to our staff.

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.

Opportunity International will use your gifts where they can have the greatest impact.
