Project: Friendship Bridge + Ben Rasmussen

Ben’s assignment was to chronicle the work of the organization by featuring the women that benefit from the microfinance and education programs Friendship Bridge provides. Over the course of the week, Ben and Julie Malmberg, the Director of Communications and Marketing for Friendship Bridge, traversed the highlands of central Guatemala meeting and photographing women and their businesses that were funded with loans received from Friendship Bridge.
