In a country where racial distrust had led to the deterioration of the culture of loan repayment, Opportunity was determined to succeed. Relying on academic and industry experts to help design products based on the needs of our clients, Opportunity South Africa offers micro- and small business loans and–very importantly–training to small business owners creating jobs and opportunities where there once were none.
This project aims to bring millions of South African's closer to the day when they can safely deposit their savings, access loans to grow businesses, and purchase affordable insurance to protect their families—right in their own communities.
Take for example, Thiembe Radebe, with Opportunity South Africa he has improved his welding business and been able to better provide for his family. See his image below. He is just one of the almost 5000 clients Opportunity serves in South Africa through our 5 branches.
