Opportunity EduFinance is a group of the non-profit organisation Opportunity International, devoted to improving access to and quality of education through microfinance products and services in the developing world...
Education microfinance – creating access to quality education in the developing world
Opportunity EduFinance is becoming a significant force in tackling the global education crisis. The schools that we support emerge in parts of the world where parents are denied effective state education. By helping the schools to improve facilities and the quality of education they can offer, and by allowing more parents to use them, Opportunity EduFinance is allowing some of the world’s poorest children access a decent education that they might otherwise be denied. To date, we have facilitated some $60 million in loans, benefitting as many as 1.1 million children.
Tackling the global education crisis through large scale impact investment
Now even more will benefit as our sustainable, low risk and commercially viable investment models attract more impact investors and the scale of our work increases significantly. Our ambition is to facilitate unlimited microfinance support for an unlimited number of schools and parents, so that all the world’s children have access to the education that is their right.
