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.
Our Two Strategy Approach
First, agriculture initiatives focus on providing financing, training and technology for farmers to engage in sustainable agricultural practices. Our agricultural loans represent a co-investment with the farmers. Farmers learn from Opportunity agronomists how to create “integrated farms” that recycle local resources and produce healthier crops.
Secondly, we assist in adding economic value to farm products through our agricultural processing plant, reducing the risk of poor farmers’ dependence on just one crop. By diversifying the products processed through the plant, farmers are increasing their incomes and accessing new market opportunities. With additional earnings and a greater peace of mind, they can feed and clothe their families, send their children to school, invest in their businesses and find hope for a better future. Currently we are processing yucca grown by our farmer clients to produce starch, flour, and waxed yucca. From the field to the market we are with our farmers every step of the way.
