Opportunity International provides access to savings, small business loans, insurance and training to over four million people working their way out of poverty in the developing world. Clients in over 20 countries use these financial services to start or expand a business, provide for their families, create jobs for their neighbors and build a safety net for the future. They have been operating for over 40 years and are consistently recognized by Charity Navigator as a top 10 charity and are a preferred charity of the Gates Foundation.
This year their focus is on Colombia, a country near and dear to Skye's heart, as he grew up there and his parents are still missionaries working with communities that would benefit from these loans.
