Wally Budgell, President of Robertson Bright Inc. (RBI) is pleased to announce that the leadership and staff of RBI have chosen to partner with Opportunity International Canada.
Wally recently joined the Board of Directors at Opportunity International Canada. Understanding that in the developing world, millions of people have the skills and determination to start businesses; but that they simply lack the business-building capital to see their dreams through to fruition, Wally was inspired by the success stories of clients."Reading and hearing about lives being transformed and the power of microfinance is what made joining their board an easy decision," says Wally. If I can lend my time and energy to help others - help themselves I'm in."
Launching and running a business is never easy, no matter what country you live in, but even more so in the developing world. Opportunity International entrepreneurs spur innovation and create important jobs. Opportunity helps to make that possible.
Every dollar invested in Opportunity becomes $6 invested in microenterprises over the course of 5 years.
As loans are repaid, the money is lent to new entrepreneurs again and again, multiplying the impact of each dollar over time. Check out our estimate of your group's collective impact as your donations are recycled and reinvested!
