Nov 9, 2011

Activity Highlights

With nearly 7,000 active loan clients, Opportunity Mexico continues to achieve steady growth. The outstanding loan portfolio grew by more than 26% in the first six months of the year. Opportunity Mexico delivers loans and training through Trust Groups and is currently developing individual loan products to serve clients who operate small and medium businesses as well as Trust Group clients who have graduated to larger loans with more flexible terms. In July, Opportunity Mexico launched a credit life insurance policy that includes funeral coverage for clients and their family members.
