On January 1, millions of Opportunity International clients around the world woke up, eager for the New Year to begin. Instead of worrying where their next meal would come from, they set food on the table. Instead of wondering how they’d earn enough money to provide for their families, they went to work in the businesses they created.
For millions of people across the globe, today there’s Opportunity—and that starts with people like you. We are so pleased to announce that through our Invest in One Family program, we’ve empowered over 27,800 families with the loans, training and other assistance they need to break free from poverty.
That means a warm, safe home for mothers like Aleyda and her children in Nicaragua. It means hard-working farmers like Arnest can turn struggling family enterprises into thriving businesses. And it means women like Justine in Uganda can finally send her children to school.
The upcoming year will certainly bring challenges to each of these families. But Opportunity International will be there to support them and make sure their success continues. The New Year is a time to hope. It is a time to act on dreams. And those dreams are made possible when we each invest in Opportunity.
