A woman is a change-agent. She can feed her family. Build her business. Raise her kids. Employ her neighbors. She can inspire sustainable transformation and create a new story for herself, her children and her entire community. A woman is powerful and full of often-untapped potential. A woman can change the world. But first, she needs to be given an opportunity.
Despite this truth, women still face countless challenges. In sub-Saharan Africa, fewer than one in five girls go to secondary school. Globally, women own less than one percent of the world’s property. And women work two thirds of the world's working hours and produce one half of the world’s food, but earn only ten percent of the world's income.
With your help, Opportunity International provides that opportunity and empowers women in the developing world to break free from the cycle of poverty. Through small-scale financial tools and training from Opportunity, clients are able to build their businesses, create jobs, support their families and transform their communities. And it all starts with just one loan. As her business thrives, she lifts others out of chronic poverty and changes the world.
