The state of the world today.
Women make up the majority of those around the world who are living in extreme poverty. They face legal and cultural inequities and are often excluded from the formal economy. They are more vulnerable to gender inequality, forced labor or even violence.
Invest in Opportunity.
In spite of the challenges they face, women worldwide show inspiring resilience and determination to break out of the cycle of poverty. Studies show that when women have access to financial services, they have a significant impact on the quality of life for their families, especially their children.
Opportunity helps empower women to develop new roles as income earners and community leaders. With access to transformational training, and critical financial products such as savings, loans and insurance, women in poverty can build financial security and create stability for their families, often for the first time in their lives.
