Bigger, stronger, better. That describes Opportunity Fund in 2010. Against a backdrop of soaring unemployment, our high-impact microfinance programs generated real economic growth by investing in the Bay Area’s greatest resource—its people.
Every $1 lent to a Bay Area small business spurs new wages, new spending, and new tax revenue—generating almost $2 more in annual economic activity in the region.
From green loans to emergency savings accounts, Opportunity Fund continues to develop microfinance products and prove that the smallest investments can have the highest returns. And we bring it all together at Microfinance USA—the conference where the nation's leading microfinance champions exchange ideas and information to set the agenda for the future of the field.
