Where We Work Dominican Republic

Get facts about poverty in the Dominican Republic and learn how we empower its people to work their way out of poverty and build a safety net for the future.

Opportunity International’s partner in the Dominican Republic, locally known as ASPIRE, has been working as a microfinance not-for-profit organization for over 30 years servicing poor entrepreneurs with loans and training in six cities in the country.

In July 2013, ASPIRE received a Savings and Loans license, which allows them to operate as a Cooperative. By June 2014, Coop-ASPIRE had over 19,000 loan recipients and over 33,000 depositors who have become members of the cooperative.

ASPIRE was one of the first Opportunity Implementing Members that Opportunity Canada partnered with over 14 years ago. Over the next two years, ASPIRE’s growth goals include serving over 30,000 clients with loans and training.
