Give Opportunity to the DR Congo



In the aftermath of war and genocide throughout the 1990's, the Democratic Republic of the Congo has been through much trauma in the past 20 years. In order for the economy to recover and flourish, citizens of this developing nation will need access to bank accounts and safe places to invest, store, and spend their money.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

In order for an economy to flourish, citizens need save places to store and invest their money. Less than 1% of Congolese have a bank account.

How will this project solve this problem?

Opportunity International seeks to build a bank branch in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Secure banking contributes to the building of infrastructure in any society.

Potential Long Term Impact

With your help, we can empower people to work their way out of chronic poverty, transform their lives, their children's futures and their communities.
