Opportunity Bank Serbia (OBS) is a community bank that provides micro, rural, agro and small and medium-enterprise (SME) loans to clients who cannot ordinarily access financial services from traditional banks. Clients are typically from semi-urban and rural areas of Serbia. The bank specializes in loans to dualincome cottage industries and the agricultural sector. OBS’s mission is to help create jobs, stimulate small businesses and enable the
economic transformation of its clients. With a strategically developed branch network, OBS utilizes field-based client advisors (loan officers) to reach clients in remote areas. USAID has provided financial support totaling $11.96 million to Opportunity International to create a sustainable financial institution in Serbia.
