What We Do

Through micro banking, Education Finance, Agriculture Finance, and a wide range of innovative programs, Opportunity International helps families provide for themselves and break the cycle of poverty.

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.
