Opportunity International is the official charity partner of Silver Chef. This incredible organization provides small business loans that allow people to work their way out of poverty in the developing world.
Just as Silver Chef gives customers a chance to live their potential through our funding model, Opportunity International gives people in the developing world a helping hand to transform their lives, allowing them to maintain their dignity and create their own success story.
In communities that Opportunity International supports, family incomes rise, children are well fed and go to school, homes are improved and women gain status. Their mandate is to serve all people regardless of race, religion, ethnicity or gender.
Imagine struggling to find enough to eat, not being able to give your kids an education, getting sick from sleeping on a cold floor. This is reality for many of the world’s poor. For every $70 donated to Opportunity International Australia, a family can buy a sewing machine or vegetable seeds to start their own business and transform their lives, their children’s futures and their communities.
With 98% of loans repaid and then recycled, more and more families are helped over time.
