Everyone deserves an Opportunity

Think about the person who gave you your first opportunity. The person who first believed in you. The person who encouraged you and made your dreams possible. When you donate to Opportunity International, you give this kind of opportunity to a woman working her way out of poverty. She uses her loan to grow her business, provide for her family and hire her neighbors — improving the whole community.
You make her opportunity possible.
