Thank you to the Cisco Foundation for recognizing Friendship Bridge in its support of the Grameen Foundation’s Progress out of Poverty Index (PPI®). Cisco invests in self-sustaining programs that use technology to overcome challenges. With the formalization of Friendship Bridge’s Social Performance Management (SPM) in 2011 along with our adoption of PPI, our data collection systems and results are more robust and integrated with our regular everyday operations. Data stored in a cloud-based system is shared by teams in six Guatemalan branches and the U.S. The data provides crucial information to align strategy with client needs and shows how we have made a difference in the lives of our clients.
