Opportunity International aims to empower women and men to lift themselves out of poverty by enabling access to sustainable, pro-poor financial services. They believe in a hand-up, not a hand-out.
Opportunity International provides:
- Loans to hardworking micro-entrepreneurs to create family security and jobs
- Formalised savings accounts to protect hard earned incomes
- Micro-insurance schemes to protect poor people in times of crisis
- Strategic partnerships
- Financial literacy training to improve business planning and household budgeting
Opportunity International's training programmes can turn an insecure, hand-to-mouth business into a profitable one that puts food on the table, ensures children get an education and creates new jobs.
You can help Opportunity International continue to provide loans that are transformative. For more information, visit their website www.opportunity.org.uk. To help support their work, sign up to play People's Postcode Lottery.
