Estelí in Nicaragua is made up of much more than just big cigar factories. Parallel to Joya de Nicaragua, Drew Estate, Plasencia and AJ Fernandez a myriad of smaller factories operate throughout the city, in everything from town houses to backyards.

Education has given the whole community a sense of hope and new meaning to life.
