Who Not to Have Dig Your Nicaraguan Well

All I can say is, do not use MacGregor, IPEMSA to dig your Nicaraguan well. Fortunately for us, the quality is not compromised, but the schedule certainly is. We are currently trucking in water for construction even though we have a well since they still haven’t installed the pump.

While they were extremely profession before we signed the contract last July(oh what a terrible sentence!), now they only answer our calls when they don’t know it’s us (as in we call them from a phone whose number they don’t have yet).

My last phone message a few minutes ago went like this – “Hi Sergio, it’s Nicole with NPH. I know you’re not going to return my call, I just need to call you for legal reasons to ask when you’re going to install the pump since MacGregor didn’t show up today (again) like you had said they would last Friday (again). I know you’re not going to respond to this message either, but my phone number is……”

And pound pound pound went my headache.

Ah, life as a volunteer!
