About Opportunity International & Global Citizen

Providing community entrepreneurs with access to financial services and creating jobs are two of the most effective ways we've helped our clients break the cycle of poverty. There’s another crucial factor: informed, passionate individuals working together to form effective movements for change and eliminate poverty. We’re part of GC because we want to help our clients create 20MM jobs by 2020, impacting well over 100 million lives. A big goal, yes, but achievable together with global citizens.
