Being a business owner comes with a responsibility to support your community. To make that easier, NAWBO has a partnership with Opportunity International, a global, non-profit organization that provides programs and resources to help millions of women in developing countries break the cycle of poverty.
This support comes in the form of loans, savings programs, business training, microinsurance, agriculture and education finance to women entrepreneurs around the globe—in 22 countries across Africa, Asia, Latin America and Europe. In fact, since 1971, Opportunity International has provided more than $8.5 billion in loans to its clients.
Like Opportunity International, NAWBO believes that when women business owners thrive, so does the economy. By supporting Opportunity International’s transformative programs as a woman entrepreneur and member of NAWBO, you have the ability to help alleviate poverty in some of the poorest areas of the world and help women entrepreneurs and the economy thrive.
Ninety percent of Opportunity International’s loans go to women, so you can trust that your financial contribution will directly impact women trying to start or grow their businesses, make better lives for themselves and their families and transform their communities. You will also play a meaningful role in helping Opportunity International support thousands more women entrepreneurs each year through financial tools and leadership training.
