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
Macquarie have teamed up with Opportunity International for International Women’s Day 2015 to empower women around the world with opportunity. With your help, together with the power of these entrepreneurial women, we can help women transform their lives, their families futures and their communities. Thank you.
Your donation to Opportunity International will be matched by the Macquarie Group Foundation, meaning we can provide more opportunities to families and communities living in poverty.

Funding will be directed to the area of greatest need within the proposed program. Sometimes programs may change in scope and in this case, Opportunity may redirect funding to a suitable alternative program.
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.
