Ghada El Sheikh, a small scale farmer in Lebanon, used a loan from Global Communities to purchase fertilizer and irrigation equipment to help her generate more income for her family. Global Communities’ microfinance lending in Lebanon is supported by $20 million in OPIC financing, which has helped it provide nearly 36,000 loans to small businesses, entrepreneurs and farmers – like Ghada. These loans have supported tens of thousands of jobs.

In 2015, Global Communities received the OPIC Impact Award for Access to Finance.
