Microfinance is much more than a loan. It is a way to unlock human capital and empower people to transform their lives, their children's futures and their communities. Opportunity International has disbursed over 14 million loans in our 40 years of work and have been a pioneer within the field but we realize not everyone may be as familiar with microfinance, what it means, how it works and why we do it. To help address this, we have compiled a blog series titled "The ABCs of Microfinance" that will walk through topics like micro-insurance, answer questions about bank building to serve those in poverty and show videos on Trust Group methodology.
We invite you to read through the posts, make comments, and share with friends. If you have any questions, post them on our Facebook page, start the conversation and we'll join in as well.
