How will this project solve this problem?

Your donation will help Opporunity maintain its essential banking services including supporting our mobile banks and cell phone banking technology as well as expanding our services to impoverished families across Malawi.

Potential Long Term Impact

Families can now avoid disaster. Our outreach to loan clients increased significantly, from 4,665 in December 2009 to 7,993 today – a 71% increase. With your help we will expand our services to the most rural areas of Malawi.
