Maniche is nestled up in the mountains, surrounded by tall coconut and palm trees. The community has a small-town feel, with the mayor’s home and a courthouse located in the downtown area. The local economy is driven by agriculture. Community members grow rice, oranges, guava, pineapples, cassavas, yams and corn, and sell their goods at a nearby market. Because it is so isolated up in the mountains, the poverty is harsh, and opportunities are few and far between. Still, the community is resilient and determined. Through these difficulties, people in Maniche have unwavering faith.
