Not Much happening here

Random thoughts of little value

Another inspiring visit yesterday, as we traveled into the mountains of northern Nicaragua to meet with a women’s group based in the tiny village of Cinco Pinos. This is an agricultural community, with very few other opportunities, especially for women. So, it was inspiring to hear how these women decided to form their own group sixteen years ago, with the purpose of learning how to produce, and sell, crafts made with pine needles that are abundant in their area. They have progressed significantly since that time, and their products are now not only sold in stores in Managua and Masaya, but also exported to the US.
