Opportunity International Australia is a non-profit organisation which impacts the lives of millions of the world’s poorest people. 

A member of the Opportunity International Global Network, we provide financial solutions and training that empower people living in poverty to transform their lives, their children’s futures and their communities.  We do this by supporting microfinance organisations in developing communities in India, Indonesia, the Philippines and in China, to help the poor establish and grow businesses, to earn regular incomes and to insure against an uncertain future.  We also provide complementary products such as educational and agri loans and we facilitate healthcare programs.
