Very interesting usage of revenue stamp. Always nice to see the revenue stamp in action.

According to the document, Constance Finch or Fench? was about 25 years old when issued, and a teacher from Providence, RI. Maybe Spanish was her academic specialty and she was in Colombia to improve her proficiency. or possibly to teach English as a second language.

Wonder what became of her?

I wonder what she might think about her face and other personal info being published for the world to see?

Considering she was born in 1912, she's probably past caring.
