Project Main Details

Talent Meets Opportunity 
Inspiring and moving video pieces to open up a national summit for Opportunity International. Two videos total:
1. Opener (2 - 3 minutes)
2. Closer (1 - 1:30 minutes)

OI is a leading, non-for-profit global micro-finance organization, providing loans for emerging entrepreneurs in impoverished areas. Over the past 40 years, OI has funded over 5 billion loans, with all earnings being reinvested into the communities where the original loans are made.

We don't have a huge budget for this project. However, these are the first in a series of videos to be produced over the next year, so there is strong potential for ongoing work with this client.

Script Details

**Please submit custom demo** 
Even in the most impoverished places on earth, you will find those with a wealth of natural talent.

People who possess the courage, determination and drive to transform their lives, their childrenÂ’s futures, even the fate of their communities.

But just as a garden needs rain to grow, talent needs opportunity to thrive.

No one understands this more than Opportunity International. For over 40 years, we have been an ever present and vital force, empowering talented entrepreneurs to break free of poverty.

Most astounding, 98% of these loans are paid back. When a loan is repaid, money remains in the community making it available for the next person and the next.

But it takes more than a loan to create sustainable success. In cooperation with our philanthropic donors, corporate partners, impact investors and staff, we implement strategic initiatives in the areas of: Education.....Agriculture....Innovation....And Leadership.

Initiatives designed to give people focus, purpose, and a purchase on bigger, brighter futures.

Maria from Nicaragua is living proof of the direct and lasting impact we are making. Struggling to make ends meet and provide for her children, Maria secured a loan through Opportunity Nicaragua, enabling her to follow her dream of opening her own hammock-weaving workshop. Gradually, MariaÂ’s business gained traction and she was able to purchase a storefront and employ six family members.

As her sales increased, she added seven more workers—doubling her labor force. Suddenly, more income became available to greater numbers of people, helping the community develop at a greater rate. All because of one womanÂ’s inspired vision for business success and a better life for her children. Today, Maria is not only selling more hammocks locally, sheÂ’s exporting them to the United States.

Suzie Wandera [pron: Wand-Era], founding member and chairperson of the Suubi [pron: Sue-Bee] WomenÂ’s Trust Group is further testament to the positive transformation occurring. Over the past seventeen years, she has received a total of 21 loans with Opportunity. Loans that have enabled her to open and expand a hostel in her local university town, pay school tuition for her grandchildren, and support several other dependentsÂ’ educations as well.

As a leader within her Trust Group, she meets weekly with other women to make loan payments and share information about saving, budgeting and other topics vital to building their small businesses. If one member faces loan default, the group unites to cover the payment and renew their credit.

Now in full possession of the resources and confidence needed to succeed, Suzy and others are true agents of change in the community, even going so far as to welcome those men who have asked to join the WomenÂ’s Trust group with open arms.

Suffice it to say, the human potential weÂ’ve helped unlock has been nothing short of momentous.
Creating jobs.
Securing families.
Fueling economies.

Together we unite opportunity with talent.
Together we uncover the path to a better way forward.
Together we create momentum.
