It’s that time of year again… it’s almost time to go back to school! And for people living in poverty, having access to education is a crucial factor that can help them improve the futures of their children, their communities and themselves. That’s whyhttp://www.opportunity.org/Opportunity[/intlink] offers school fee loans, as well as educationmicrofinance for the establishment of local schools as part of our Banking on Educationprogram.
