Where We Work Nicaragua

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

In Nicaragua, the least developed country in Central America, approximately 32 percent of the population lives on less than $2 per day. Nearly half of the country’s most impoverished people live in rural areas where they struggle to survive in agriculture-based occupations. For nearly two decades, Opportunity International has worked with microentrepreneurs in Nicaragua to build sustainable, successful businesses that will break them out of the cycle of poverty.

Opportunity International’s partner in Nicaragua is locally known as Asociación de Oportunidad y Desarrollo Económico de Nicaragua (ASODENIC).  They have been working for over 20 years servicing poor entrepreneurs with loans and training in 12 cities in Nicaragua.

ASODENIC is registered with the National Commission of Microfinance (CONAMI) as a Microfinance Organization, which demands the organization adhere to strict rules and norms to meet local financial regulations and protect clients.

ASODENIC was one of the first Opportunity Implementing Members that Opportunity Canada partnered with over 15 years ago.

Over the next three years, they are planning growth goals include serving over 25,000 clients with loans and training.
