About Us Our Origins

Since 1971, Opportunity International has harnessed innovative microfinance solutions to expand access to finance in over 20 countries worldwide.

Over the years and across regions, our clients have always agreed about what is most important to them and their families - good quality education for their children.

Yet more than 617 million children [1] and adolescents are not achieving minimum levels in reading and mathematics, perpetuating poverty and global inequality.

In 2007, Opportunity International launched the EduFinance initiative, in response to client needs. Piloting in Africa, we went to scale in 2013. We now operate in 23 countries, working with financial institutions, schools and communities across Asia, Africa, Latin America and beyond.
