Microfinance Opportunities

Microfinance Opportunities is a global non-profit committed to understanding the economic realities of low-income and marginalized people. By describing and analyzing these realities we inform the policies and practices of government, the private sector, multilateral organizations, civil society, and low-income and marginalized people themselves. We do this through the collection, analysis, and visualization of data, and the dissemination of the results through interactive and engaging materials and education efforts.

Our Garment Worker Diaries initiative in Bangladesh is currently active and conducting telephone-based interviews with 1,300 garment workers a week. Our goal is to understand how they are living and working during the global COVID-19 crisis. Please stay up to date with us at our Worker Diaries homepage.
