Where We Work Malawi

Get facts about poverty in Malawi and learn how we empower its people to work their way out of poverty and build a safety net for the future.

Malawi is one of the least developed and most impoverished countries on earth. Nearly 53 percent of its 15 million inhabitants live below the poverty line. 

In Malawi, 85 percent of the population lives in rural areas.

To reach these remote communities, Opportunity International works with local partners using innovative technology and rural outreach programmes to enable people to access services right in their own villages, saving them the time and cost of travel.  Technologies like biometric fingerprint identification on an ID card, keeping a client’s savings secure, help those who are illiterate or with no ID documents to access financial services.

Opportunity International has been working in Malawi for over 15 years.
