Description: In 1999 these children are working in Nicaragua for 9 Cordobas a day (US$ .76) picking peanuts in a field in the district of Chinandega, one of the districts hardest hit by Hurricane Mitch. The parents of these children are in Costa Rica, trying to earn enough money to send back to Nicaragua so they do not lose their lands to the bank. These small producers lost almost all of their crops to the hurricane.
