Review for Opportunity International, Oak Brook, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I became very involved with Opportunity International through a Board of Governor's member in 2005, and became a donor and Board of Governor's member myself shortly thereafter. I am very passionate about the eradication of poverty. After many years of trial and error, training/technology based models of microfinance appear to be a viable solution and potentially a major breakthrough to economic development in many parts of the third world.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Meeting with Opportunity's loan recipients.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make it non-denominational.

Role:  Donor & I attended fundraisers, and met the organization's executive director.
