International Women's DayEmpowering women and girls to succeed today—and every day.

March 8 is International Women’s Day, a day to celebrate and champion women in developing economies who are working their way out of poverty.

Why We Love
International Women's Day

Opportunity International was founded with a vision that everyone should have the chance to live a life free from poverty, with dignity and purpose. Everyone. This ambitious goal requires dedicated attention to one of the most marginalized groups in the developing world: women.

We empower mothers, educators, farmers, and entrepreneurs with critical financial services like loans to build their businesses, savings accounts to protect their hard-earned income, and financial skills training so they have the confidence and knowledge to effectively manage their money.

Together we can help women around the world fulfill their potential, lift themselves and their families out of poverty, educate their children, and transform their lives.

Wang describes the experiences of people at the “last frontier of the mobile/digital revolution” in the most rural villages, the places without roads, and the communities that Opportunity International has committed to serve.
