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
Jim Ferree passed away on August 26,2017 from prostate cancer. He loved the simple things in life, like a walk in the morning with a good cup of coffee and reading a book on the deck. He also cared deeply for those less fortunate. If you would like to leave a memorial in his memory to Opportunity International, you too would be caring for those less fortunate.
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 22 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.
