• A client makes a deposit in her savings account at a branch in Ghana.



    Savings accounts serve as a critical mechanism for building economic independence and safeguarding the future.

    Entrepreneurs living in poverty-stricken countries, however, often can’t access formal banks. This forces them to pay high fees to savings collectors or hide money around the house, leaving it vulnerable to theft.

    Opportunity International responded to this challenge by building a network of scalable, sustainable and accessible banks throughout the developing world. Since 2001, Opportunity International has built 13 regulated microfinance institutions, including nine banks.

    Opportunity International has designed a range of microfinance savings products based upon flexible minimum deposit amounts, interest rates and terms.

    Our clients now have a secure, convenient way to manage money and prepare for anything from a crisis to a business opportunity. 

    Your support will help entrepreneurs build potential and secure their future.
