Current Concerns

Pharmacy in Chaguitillo
Leana, the pharmacist, is obligated to start repaying her loan in July.  We hope she will be able to do this without sacrificing the well being of her family.  She is currently working 12 hours a day to establish her clientele.
Macadamia concerns
The UCA is looking for appropriate local tools, which can be used to husk the Macadamia nuts easily and efficiently, processing equipment in general and markets.
The Rainy Season
May is usually the beginning of the rainy season.  We are hoping for sufficient rain to replenish groundwater for the wells, encourage good growing conditions and fill the lakes and rivers.
