Financing Education in Uganda

CHICAGO - October 11, 2016 - Opportunity International today announced that it has received a $1 million grant to expand its Education Finance (EduFin) initiatives in Uganda and beyond from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The project will develop an open-platform credit algorithm that will rapidly replicate Opportunity's successful EduFin products for both school-fee and school-improvement loans and ultimately ensure that millions more low-income families in the developing world can send their children to school.

Opportunity has made over 130,000 education loans totaling more than $72.4 million since 2012, impacting more than 1.5 million children and young people across 10 developing countries.
