Photo Blog: We’re Banking on Africa

By Opportunity International

This summer, Opportunity has launched the Banking on Africa Campaign. The campaign aims to bring millions of Sub-Saharan Africans closer to the day when they can safely deposit their savings, access loans to grow businesses, and purchase affordable insurance to protect their families—right in their own communities.

Check out a photo tour below of some of the countries we’re serving in Sub-Saharan Africa. For more on the Banking on Africa Campaign, check out opportunity.org/africa.
