Project Main Details

Opportunity International Video DVD 
This project is a documentary recording a trip taken by Canadian and American business men and women to Cartagena, Columbia. They traveled there to observer how their contributions to the micro-finance organization Opportunity International were being used to assist those living in poverty.

The script provides narrative glimpses into the lives of a few of the clients visited in Cartagena interlaced with statistics about poverty in general and Opportunity International specifically. We are looking for a natural, conversational voice-over that communicates but doesn't over-sell. The topic is serious but we don't want to introduce drama. The goal is to uphold the dignity of the highlighted clients while helping people to understand the general working of the Opportunity International organization. We want the pace to be relaxed but not sleepy.

This will be used by our client for DVD's

Script Details

Assembled from mismatched planks, plastic tarps and driftwood, this small structure provides shelter for Edwin, his wife and their four young children. It also serves as headquarters for Edwin’s growing pastry business. He sells traditional Columbian dulce de leche filled treats on the streets of the barrio where he lives. Using a press he purchased with a $150 loan from an organization called Opportunity International, Edwin makes around 160 flat waffle-cone-like wafers, called obleas, each day. Because of his loan he is able to purchase flour in bulk. His bike, used to haul 50lb sacks of flour from the local supplier as well as deliver his obleas to market, shows its wear. Edwin dreams of providing a brick home for his young family. The small loan from Opportunity International has provided he and his family hope, hope that they will be able to free themselves from the tight grip of poverty.
