What We’re Reading: Last Week’s Insight Trip to Colombia & Nicaragua

By Opportunity International

Opportunity International staff and contributors just returned this week from the first Insight Trip of 2012. Their travel adventure took them to Colombia and Nicaragua where they experienced microfinance firsthand and met our staff and clients. Four of our travelers published their personal accounts and reflections on a travel blog at and we’ve loved reading each of their takes on it. Check them out:
