Opportunity International helps those living in poverty build sustainable incomes, educate their children, and escape poverty today—as they prepare the next generation for a better tomorrow. Since 1971, we have used the power of the financial markets and focused innovation to provide financial services, training, and support to hard-working families at the bottom of the economic pyramid. We help entrepreneurs build sustainable businesses, farmers grow and sell more crops, and children get quality education. Today, in partnership with like-minded organizations, supporters, and practitioners around the world, we are part of a worldwide movement striving to end extreme poverty in our lifetimes.
Opportunity equips entrepreneurs and small business owners with innovative financial services, training, and support, helping them build their businesses, increase their incomes, and support their families.
By supporting both schools and families, Opportunity helps students access—and complete—high-quality educations, equipping them with the tools they need to break the cycle of generational poverty.
Opportunity International builds market connections for farmers and agribusinesses, ensuring that rural communities can access financial services and agricultural training to help them increase their harvests and feed their families.
Opportunity continually develops, pilots, and scales new products and services to better serve our clients. Our current innovative approaches include programs like women’s economic empowerment, digital financial services, graduation model programs for those living in ultra-poverty, services for refugees, and vocational training for youth.
