Review for Opportunity International, Oak Brook, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have supported OI with monthly donations since the 1990s. I first heard of microfinance and OI through a book called "Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger". That book sold me on microfinance, and the integrity of OI sold me on it. I have watched it grow over the years with a business savvy and yet laser-focus on mission that is unparalleled. It is consistently on the cutting edge of technology in finding more efficient and more effective ways to serve the poor, and it is highly transparent and communicative about what it does with its money.
