Opportunity International Australia provides small loans to families in developing countries to help them start businesses, earn incomes and leave poverty behind.

With 98% of loans recycled, the impact continues year after year. Opportunity is motivated by Jesus Christ’s call to love and serve the poor, serving all people regardless of their race, faith, ethnicity and gender.
