OPIC and DAWN announced in early May that the former had agreed to provide a $5 million loan to support DAWN’s activities in the country. An outgrowth of Save the Children’s Myanmar operation, DAWN has been operating independently of the NGO for the past two years, with strong support from Accion and other stakeholders. When DAWN launched in 2015, it had 27,000 clients carried over from Save the Children. Two years later, it serves 80,000 women and has its eye on rapid expansion.
