Opportunity Malawi Weathers the Economic Storm

Opportunity Malawi weathers the economic storm, with your partnership

 Malawi is one of the poorest countries in the world, with 90% of the population living below $2 a day. Macroeconomic issues in 2010-2011 continued into 2012, hitting the poorest families the hardest. Under new president, Joyce Banda, Malawi is recovering from the effects of the former president’s actions. With the international donor community supporting the new administration, fuel availability and cost and foreign exchange are improving the outlook. Amidst the economic turbulence, Opportunity Malawi made adjustments to meet the needs of struggling families and marched forward with its outreach goals.  

Our global network team is ensuring that Opportunity Malawi emerges from the economic crisis stronger as a result of our continued focus on our mission, vision and long-term strategy. During the first half of the year, Opportunity Malawi achieved increased outreach in the following ways:

  • Opened two new kiosks in Q2 2012, one in Blantyre and another in Mulanje.
  • Added 22 mobile van stops serving farmer families at the Lujeri Tea Estates.
