Providing access to clients living in the world’s most geographically remote areas is an important part of what Opportunity does. Reaching clients like Malawian farmer Jakobo Chikayiko, or Jakob as he’s known, who live hours from urban areas is crucial to connecting them with financial services, access to markets for agricultural goods, and economic sustainability.
Through financial services like crop insurance and loans, clients like Jakob are better able to protect their futures. Read Jakob’s story, watch the “Harvesting Hope” video about Opportunity’s agriculture finance program, and explore our 2009 Annual Report for links to stories, videos and more information about Jakob and our microfinance work all around the world. Learn how we’re Helping Communities Thrive by providing financial access to over two million economically marginalized people in more than 20 countries. It’s more thanmicrofinance: it’s a working solution to global poverty.
