Our History

  • Opportunity International was founded in 1971 by visionaries Al Whittaker and David Bussau. As one of the first charities to recognise the benefits of offering financial services to those living in poverty, we forged partnerships and innovated to tackle this issue. In over 50 years, we have served more than 10 million families in over 20 countries.
