Why invest in women?
Through more than 40 years of experience, Opportunity International knows that when a woman gets a microfinance loan and training, she begins to build her business – anything from a produce stand or clothing stall to a mobile phone charging station or farm. Today, 94% of Opportunity’s loans are made to women who consistently show inspiring resilience and determination to change their own world and the future of their children and communities.
What is the One Woman Initiative?
The One Woman Initiative seeks to empower an additional two million women living in poverty through financial resources, education and training to build sustainable futures. Within Opportunity International, The One Woman Initiative is a focus on the single greatest point of untapped leverage in the world today – one woman and the power she wields to lift up the world around her.
