As Patron of Opportunity International UK, I am delighted that the charity has been awarded this match grant from the UK Government. I have visited Opportunity International’s work and seen first-hand the difference that its programmes make to people living in poverty. A small loan of just £140 can transform a poor person’s business and give them a hand up out of poverty. This match grant enables Opportunity International to double its impact and reach the homes and families of more people in Africa.
I’ve been involved with work in developing countries for a long time and I wish that Opportunity International had been around much earlier to underpin the work that local people did, both for their own businesses and for each other. Please consider supporting this appeal and being part of this extraordinary work.
