Gifts made by December 31 will be matched dollar for dollar, doubling
your impact on mothers who are ready to work their way out of poverty
Between now and the end of the year, your gifts will be matched
$1 to $1 (up to $500,000)—doubling your impact and empowering
hardworking mothers who are working tirelessly to give their
children bright futures free from poverty. You can help them realize
their dreams by giving them an opportunity—an opportunity to access
the loans, savings, and training they need to grow their businesses and
educate, feed, and provide for their families.
Your opportunity is now.

Women like Yulis have been impacted or displaced by the ongoing
civil war in Colombia. She dreams of building a home for her family
and sending her children to college, but she struggles to earn
enough to pay her bills and says she often worries about her
family's safety in their dangerous community.
In response to the ongoing violence and peace-building process in
Colombia, Opportunity has opened two new branches in the "violence
corridor," where pre-qualified women are awaiting new
loans. Your support makes these loans—and countless
We are ready to open new transformation offices in Africa to help
reach more families at the base of the economic pyramid. Since
launching a new office in Malawi this year, we have provided
financial training to nearly 100,000 people. With additional
support, we can launch this life-changing program
in Uganda as well.
Mothers like Caroline Musoke in Uganda would be the direct
recipients of Opportunity's transformation services. Caroline is
the primary provider for her four grandchildren and recently lost
everything when a fire ravaged the local market where she sells
fruits and vegetables. She is fighting to rebuild her business so
she can afford to keep her grandchildren in school—and needs
Opportunity’s tools and training to do so.
Musah Salima constantly worries about the environmental
threats that ravage her farm. Recently, maize and soy farmers in
Ghana have been struggling with an armyworm infestation that has
severely affected their crops and is destabilizing prices.
For farmers like Musah, a hurdle like this could jeopardize an entire
year's income. And without a steady source of revenue to pay school
fees, her five children are at risk of having to drop out of school.
With your support, Opportunity is ready to support farmers
with specific training on best practices for fighting the
invasion and managing cash flows during this downtime.
Your gifts will help us reach mothers like Marilyn who are
living on less than $0.50/day and empower them to become
self-supporting. Marilyn lives with her husband and three children
in a modest shelter in the Philippines. Each day, she struggles to
buy enough food to feed her family and cannot even contemplate
additional luxuries like medicine or school.
We work with people like Marilyn to establish a source of income
and implement a rigorous training program, which kickstarts their
journey out of poverty. With your support, Opportunity can
expand efforts that focus on this most vulnerable
group who are struggling to simply survive.
Sahela lives in Bihar, India's most underdeveloped state.
In response to the poor health needs she saw around her, Sahela
became a Community Health Leader so she could teach her village
about illness prevention, health treatment, nutrition, and proper
With your support this winter, we will train more vital
Community Health Leaders to 1) grow their health-related
businesses and 2) use tablets that will make it easier to diagnose
diseases and quickly refer people to the right doctors. Equipped
with the right skills and tools, these hardworking women will
improve health for families in vulnerable communities across India.
