Entrepreneurs in Nicaragua
Photographer: Andrew Kubicek
I spent this past summer in a rural village in Nicaragua where I worked with budding entrepreneurs to build self-sustaining ventures. One specific cooperative I enjoyed working with was a group of 35 women who create baskets using pine needles and string. This photo is meaningful to me because it captures my daily work this summer with the women while also reminding me of the many faces I got to know. Although strangers to most, the faces in the picture remind me of stories and memories that no one can ever fully understand without traveling and living in San José de Cusmapa, Nicaragua.
