Travaille: Market day at Ng'ombe Compound

Here are a few pictures from my photoshoot today for a micro-finance bank. In all I did portraits of 14 vendors (all microfinance clients) and met (with the help and introduction from the bank's loan officer) several others that had either 'graduated' from the bank or were putting their proposals together. The shops this group were running sold: cooking oil (below), vegetables, kapenta (dried fish), rocks (to nibble during your pregnancy), fresh eggs, used clothing and shoes, chitenge cloth, fritters, chicken, offals, charcol and  popcorn. There was also a grocery store, a hair salon, soup stall, a carpenter's shop and a barbeque stand.
