In January 2010, Kim and 9 other women traveled to Colombia to see microfinance in action.

Kim Asman was no exception. "I had expected to see hopelessness and desperation in the face of such poverty," says Kim, "but instead I saw hope, laughter, dreams for the future and a fullness of life that is not quite present back home."
Upon returning home, Kim said she was filled with a burning passion to do something and to change her own life. She wanted to get back to the same basic values she saw evident in many of the families in Colombia. So, in June 2010, Kim left her lucrative16-year career in the oil and gas industry. No longer did the fast-paced, high-stress world of business fit her newfound worldview.
"At first my family was shocked, but they were very supportive. My co-workers joked that I would be back to work in just a few months," says Kim. "I had been very committed to my career for so long that it was hard for people to believe this change would last."
Over a year later, there is no looking back for Kim. She admits she does miss parts of her previous life including the social aspect with co-workers, but the benefits she receives from spending time with her family and advocating for microfinance outweigh everything else.
Kim and the 9 other women formed a group called Amigos de Colombia - or Friends of Colombia upon their return to Canada. Their sole purpose was to raise $150,000 over three years to support a village in Colombia through microfinance. In less than 8 months the group raised $125,000 and is well ahead of their three-year target.
Through her work for Amigos de Colombia and as a member of Opportunity's Governor's Council, Kim continues to raise awareness of microfinance and work on behalf of people living in poverty. She is planning to visit Colombia again in 2012 along with her husband.
