In the rural countryside of Jiangsu Province, China, Shuyang county is known for the sweet smell of blooming flowers and freshly cut wood. Last Thursday in Shuyang, Opportunity International (China) conducted a meeting with local villages to introduce them to the idea of microfinance. Through a powerpoint presentation, a Q&A period, and Loan Officers breaking up the group into 1-2 people clusters, the villagers were able to learn more about the founding of OI China and, more importantly, how OI China can support their business to grow and positively influence the surrounding community. Within hours of commencing the meeting, we had already begun the loan application process with three villagers!
