Slide 29: 

Why are rural people poor in Nicaragua? Ten years of civil war between 1980 and 1990 and an economic crisis that began in 1987 have caused the collapse of the country's economy. Environmental disasters such as Hurricane Mitch, which caused extensive destruction and loss of life in November 1998, have also worsened conditions for the rural poor. Because of limited employment opportunities and inadequate infrastructure such as roads, water and electricity supplies, the incomes and productivity of poor rural people remain at low levels. In 2001, only one out of five extremely poor rural households had access to electricity.

Slide 30: 

Nueva Vida "New Life" is a resettlement community for about 15,000 survivors from Hurricane Mitch. In 1998, 1500 families who lost everything were moved to two cow pastures in Cuidad Sandino. Each family was given a 10'x15' plot of land and a plastic tarp for shelter. While some still live in these conditions most families in the past few years now live in a small concrete structure. The surrounding city has an 80% unemployment rate and an annual tax base of $2.30/person.
