Farmers

One out of every two people on this planet struggles to feed and educate their children. When powered by opportunity, they have a chance to work their way out of poverty and transform their lives. For over 45 years, Opportunity International has provided the access to savings, loans, training and insurance that all people need to create a better future for their families and their communities.

Poverty has a firm grip on rural areas in sub-Saharan Africa and millions lack access to sufficient high quality food. Even where natural resources are ample, people suffer from chronic malnourishment because they lack access to agricultural financing, quality seed and fertiliser, competitive crop distribution channels, agricultural education and training, and insurance against natural disasters.

Opportunity International focuses on improving agriculture across Africa because it is home to a quarter of the world’s arable land, yet it generates only 10% of global agricultural output. The fact remains that a typical African smallholder farming household lacks the necessary resources to transform their subsistence farm into a thriving agribusinesses.
