Community Leadership

Opportunity is committed to the Community Economic Development Program that views our clients as equal partners, working side by side, to create sustainable transformation and growth.


La Laguna community members work to complete the 2.75 km of piping for their community’s new aqueduct system.

Opportunity works with groups of micro- entrepreneurs, cooperatives and community groups to build their capacity to identify issues, create plans for action, mobilize community members and make successful change to improve their communities.

We work with local leaders who bring projects that are requested by their communities to Opportunity. By supporting and funding community-led initiatives, the poor become both the producers of results and the beneficiaries of the community improvement project. We believe this approach is the key to local ownership and long-term sustainability.
