Flower Market

At the periphery of Santa Clara´s Central Park, the traveller surprisingly encounters a lively cluster of flower stands and vendors, that provide a colourful and aromatic ambient from early morning and throughout the whole day. Roses, mariposas, daisies, and gladiolas, vie among themselves with their beautiful colors and scents, at the same time as they fulfil the desires of a population accustomed to buy flowers, singly or in bouquets, either for their own pleasure or as a refined gift, always well-received.

In 2005, SofoNic has started a dual education program for masons in Nicaragua, using its house-building programs as a base. Teaming up with the local technical school in Jinotepe they are graduating about ten masons every year since. Most f them have found jobs in construction or have started a business on their own. SofoNic has contracted several of them as master masons in the reconstruction programs in Haiti.
