Opportunity Bank Serbia (OBS) provides a range of financial services to underserved people and businesses in Serbia. OBS employees drive from village to village helping enterprising people start a business; they offer a new outlook for the widespread unemployment in rural areas.
By lending to small-scale businesses and individuals, OBS enables people to advance both themselves and their entire communities. It has developed internet-based training on how to save, because almost 70% of the population have less than 200 euros in savings in case of an emergency.
OBS is a member of the Global Alliance for Banking on Values, a network of values-driven banks using finance to deliver sustainable economic, social and environmental development
