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
A woman is a change-agent. She can feed her family. Build her business. Raise her kids. Employ her neighbors. She can inspire sustainable transformation and create a new story for herself, her children and her entire community. A woman is powerful and full of often-untapped potential. A woman can change the world. But first, she needs to be given an opportunity.
With your help, Opportunity International can provide that opportunity and empower women in the developing world to break free from the cycle of poverty. Through small-scale financial tools and training from Opportunity, clients are able to build their businesses, create jobs, support their families and transform their communities. And it all starts with just one $150 loan- as her business thrives, she lifts others out of chronic poverty and changes the world.
Join us in empowering women with the financial services and training that will serve as the catalyst for sustainable change.
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.
