About the Non-Profit

Opportunity International

Overview

Opportunity International is working to end extreme poverty in our lifetimes. For 50 years, we have believed that empowering individuals to work their way out of poverty and give their children a quality education is the most sustainable way to transform their lives, their families, and their communities.

Our vision is a world in which all people have the opportunity to achieve a life free from poverty, with dignity and purpose.

Mission

By providing financial solutions and training, we empower people living in poverty to transform their lives, their children’s futures and their communities.

History

Opportunity International was founded in 1971 by two visionary leaders who were inspired to take action by their experiences with people living in extreme poverty.

Today, Opportunity International serves 19 million hardworking families in 30 countries around the world. We have big plans for the world: a place without poverty where people can live with dignity and purpose. Our clients have ambitious dreams for their futures, but lack the opportunities needed to make those dreams a reality.

We go where others won’t to give these inspiring people access to financial services, training, and support—all which empower these entrepreneurs to work their way out of poverty and build a new sustainable future for themselves and their families. 

With your support, we will reach millions more clients—and those clients will change the world.
