Welcome to the Opportunity International blog. We hope to build this site into a collaborative, informative and engaging destination where we can all learn more about microfinance and poverty eradication.

What can you expect from the Opportunity blog? Look for posts from a variety of Opportunity authors. We’ll share information on developing countries where Opportunity serves, compelling stories of entrepreneurs that are working their way out of poverty, as well as updates on innovative microfinance services, technology, reach and metrics. We’ll discuss books we are reading and how they impact our views. We’ll give insights gained during trips to the field. And periodically, we’ll feature guest posts from leaders of other  organizations and advocates in the mission to end poverty faster.

In return, we hope you’ll tell us about the topics that most inspire you to return to the Opportunity Blog.

We are thrilled to launch our blog with a series of posts from our Young Ambassadors for Opportunity (YAO). Twenty YAO supporters are currently in Tanzania and Rwanda – learning about our work, our clients, our impact. Share their journey as they blog about this life-changing trip.

In anticipation of our journey and increased understanding of how a small loan, a savings account and an insurance policy can change a life, a family and a community.
