Invest In a Mother

You can invest in a mother and give her family a hand up out of poverty. Just $70 is enough for a mother to use a small loan to start a business and earn a regular income, helping her provide food, clean water, proper shelter and education for her children.

About this project

By helping a mother buy a sewing machine to start a tailoring business or seeds to start a farm, small loans enable families to earn a regular income and
leave poverty behind.

Remy used to struggle to afford food and education for her children. But with the income she has earned starting a pig farm in the Philippines through a small loan from someone like you, Remy has been able to send her daughters to university.

In the countries where we work, mothers are more likely to be involved in running their own small businesses. Many fathers take up employment where they can, but earning only a few dollars a day, their income is often not enough. Having to go without food, clean water and education can be everyday realities, but investing in a mother helps change that.

Your Support Will Help

A small loan gives a mother in a developing country the opportunity to break the cycle of poverty. With her business, she will…
  • Send her children to school
  • Put nutritious meals on the table
  • Secure a roof over her family’s head
  • Gain confidence and dignity.

Funding will be directed to the area of greatest need within the proposed program. Sometimes programs may change in scope and in this case, Opportunity may redirect funding to a suitable alternative program.
