Your gift today can change a family’s tomorrow.
The next generation is counting on us. Right now, children are being
raised in the depths of poverty with no visible way out—but you can
break the cycle now. Your gift can provide 2 critical tools to a
family: a business loan for the parents and an education loan for the
children. Together, these financial tools help parents make more money
and help children go to a good school. Will you help the next
generation break free from poverty?

Not long ago, Sindhu and Sekinder’s family of seven in central
India were in the throes of extreme poverty and hunger. While both
parents grew up in a low caste and did not finish school, they were
determined to break that cycle for their children by becoming
financially stable and giving them an education. Through
Opportunity, the family received a business loan to start a rickshaw
business, and they also took out EduFinance loans to provide
educations for all five of their daughters, ranging in ages from 12
to 25. Each of the girls now have big dreams for their careers, from
civil engineering to medicine. Sindhu says, “I feel proud of my
daughters. I know they will do their best.” With your
support, families like this one can build a stable income, put
nutritious food on the table, and give their children an education.
Abdul has been processing rice in her village in Ghana her whole

hope of better supporting her three children. Abdul did not finish
school, so her dream was for her children to receive a full
education—something they couldn't achieve as long as she was only
producing two bags of rice each week. With the support and training
she received alongside her Opportunity loan, she is now able to sell
6X as much rice! “My hope for the future is to be financially
independent. I really want to give my children the opportunity I did
not have: education. I don’t want them to go through what I have
suffered by not being educated. The only way out is through
As farmers from a village with no electricity or cell phone network,
Musah and her family of seven struggled to get by despite tumultuous
weather conditions and a lack of supplies. Without enough fertilizer
or quality seeds, their crops did not provide enough money to feed
the whole family or send their children to school. When Musah joined
Opportunity as a client, she received fertilizer, a tractor, weed
killer, and training in best agricultural practices to produce a
bountiful harvest. The increased yields now allow her four sons and
one daughter to eat well and attend school. Musah says, “When I was a
child, I did not get the opportunity to get educated. I think it’s
important to educate my children so they can have choices.” Your gift
today will provide loans to another family like Musah’s, who dreams
of breaking the cycle of poverty with their children, once and for
