We believe that as a Christian organization, we are called by Jesus Christ to love and serve the poor. Just as some Christian organizations are called to provide disaster relief, build houses, or plant churches, Opportunity International has been called to bring hope and justice to the poorest of the poor through microfinance.
We believe, as Jesus taught, that when we serve the poor we are serving Him. And so we treat each client with dignity and respect, and view every interaction with our clients as an opportunity to reflect God’s love. Some clients ask us why we care so much about helping them transform their lives. At these times, we share our Christian motivation and beliefs.
Christian microfinance for the world’s poorest is our calling. Our clients’ lives can be financially, socially and spiritually transformed and that is loving proof that God works side by side with those who labor among the poor.
Providing microfinance to God’s beloved poor in Jesus' name is a worthy and complete calling. To read more about transformational microfinance, click here.
If you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness. Isaiah 58:10
