1.5 billion people live in extreme poverty. Many are women entrepreneurs who have plans for a better future for themselves, their families, and their communities – and with a little support, they can change many lives. These women reinvest 90% of their earnings back into their families, sending their children to school, ensuring they are well fed, and providing preventative healthcare.
Opportunity International provides more than five million people – 93% women – with the financial services (loans, insurance, savings accounts, training) they need to unlock their potential and create better lives for themselves, their families, and their communities.
