Thank you, friends, for joining us at Taste of Microfinance and for supporting Opportunity Fund’s mission to provide small business loans to hard-working entrepreneurs.
Taste of Microfinance is an important way for us to build our community of supporters in Greater Los Angeles. This annual event helps Opportunity Fund to close the gap between a dream and an opportunity for thousands of local entrepreneurs - largely immigrants, women, and people of color. Thanks to you, we are tackling economic inequality so that hard work and perseverance means a shot at getting ahead, not just struggling to get by.
Every dollar invested has a ripple effect in our community. Because of you, small business owners will be able to hire more people, expand their businesses, and contribute to the local economy. Last year alone we invested $22M in LA County across 866 loans, and created or sustained 2,500 jobs. Thanks to you, that’s an economic boost of over $44M!
If you didn’t get a chance to donate (or can skip your morning coffee trip and help an entrepreneur instead!), you can do so here.
Regional Director, Opportunity Fund
