Opportunity International

Access to finance |  Urban sanitation services  |  Enterprises in safe water

Opportunity International is one of the world’s leading micro-finance organisations and serves more than 10 million families in over 20 countries. It believes that enabling individuals to create dignified and sustainable work is the foundation for transforming their lives, their children’s futures and their communities.

Opportunity International works with local partner organisations providing financial solutions in order to empower people, create jobs and remove barriers to sustainable work. Through these partnerships it offers access to savings, small business loans, insurance and training that meet the needs of local communities, and offers a hand up rather than a hand out.

It also supports programme partners with funding as well as much-needed technical and operational assistance, equipping them to reach out to people living in poverty. Areas of focus include the provision of water and sanitation facilities, education, technology and agriculture.

We are supporting Opportunity International and financial partner Sinapi Aba to scale up their WASH loans to SMEs in Ghana, enabling more people to access local WASH services.
