Truelift Recognizes Fundación Paraguaya and Friendship Bridge as Global Leaders in Pro-Poor Performance
Truelift recently announced that it has recognized Fundación Paraguaya in Paraguay and Friendship Bridge in Guatemala with the Leader Milestone, the most advanced stage along the Truelift Pro-Poor Pathway. Use of a poverty measurement tool, such as the PPI, is part of the criteria for Truelift recognition.
We highlighted Friendship Bridge and their use of the PPI in a recent blog post, where they described the value the PPI adds to their operations:
"We started utilizing the Guatemala PPI in 2011, and our use of it consistently improves our understanding of our operations, our clients and how we believe our Microcredit Plus program affects them. The insights we gained from the PPI have led to an emphasis on poverty penetration, addition of new programs, and solidifying of our theory of change and Client Continuum strategy. Since 2011, we have benefited from the excellent technical support and training for the PPI, and we are impressed with how our PPI data regularly complements and is validated by other surveys we use in the field."
