Living in a village on the Magdalena River, Sulvana was pregnant and alone after her husband was taken by a guerilla army. With determination but little capital, she took a neighbor's advice to join an Opportunity International Trust Group and start a business with a small loan of $125. Sulvana used the loan to buy clothes, which she sold in the marketplace. Today, Sulvana's business is thriving. She is working toward her dream to build a house with a space for her business and give her children the education she never received.
