Rocio Del Amanecer Group's story

The “Rocio del Amanecer” trust bank, consists of seven well-organized women. They feel blessed from the moment they open their eyes at dawn each day because they realize that new opportunities await!

Astrid is one of the members of this trust bank. She is a 21 year old single mother of twin girls. She is determined to set a good example for her daughters and struggles to move ahead. She is studying tourism and has just completed her second year in college.

Furthermore, Astrid is the successful manager of an ice cream shop which has become her primary business. She has applied for a loan from Friendship Bridge which she will use to remodel her business in order to attract more customers. She envisions an attractive shop with a pleasant atmosphere. She has already secured some estimates for the work that needs to be done. Astrid is anxious to draw families into her business, especially for the holiday season. She is confident that her business will continue to generate profits, as it is doing now, so she can continue her studies and support her family. She is very excited as her girls will start school in January.

Astrid and the other 6 women from the group are thrilled to get new loans from Friendship Bridge. These loans will serve as working capital for various businesses such as the sale of fast food, the sale of poultry and the sale of products by catalog. A bright future lies ahead for Astrid and the women of “Rocio de Amanecer”!
