Dear Friend,

ECI Development is always looking for ways to enhance communities and serve others by giving back whenever possible. One of the many ways we are of service is in our partnership with Pack for a Purpose, a non-profit company based out of North Carolina. PfaP encourages travelers to make room in their bags for useful items and clothes that others may need in the country they are visiting.

After packing for a purpose, be sure you visit Nicaragua with a healthy appetite. This beautiful country offers and serves up some of the most delicious cuisines in Central America, and it all starts with a tasty breakfast of Gallo Pinto. Yum...

Many folks who are close to retirement are looking for ways to make their retirement dollars stretch. One way is through affordable healthcare. You may want to look into Nicaragua for a full or part time retirement home. Retirement in this country will help your budget in many ways.

At Gran Pacifica, an employee bank called “El Progreso” was recently established. Our employees will be able to save and borrow funds as well as learn more about the importance of budgeting, balancing a checkbook, and saving for the future. I’m very excited by this program and hope it becomes a model of success for other businesses in Nicaragua.

Until next time,

Michael K. Cobb
