Opportunity In Action

May Edition

May 25, 2017

People like to say, “Give a man a fish, and he’ll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish, and he’ll eat for a lifetime.” But what good will it do if a fisherman doesn't have a fishing rod or doesn’t know where to sell his fish? In order to thrive, entrepreneurs must have access to markets, technology, banking, roads, water, education and more—which is why Opportunity International equips clients with the knowledge and infrastructure they need to succeed. In our latest blog, you'll learn how Opportunity is investing in the building blocks of developing economies and unleashing the potential of our clients and their communities.
