About this image


“I sell 10 chickens a day with a profit of about 5 dollars. My dream is to have the government establish a dedicated market exclusive to poultry and eggs, because the environment in the larger markets is very crowded and damages the chickens – many die from the heat.”

Nzigire is 28 years old, widowed with 5 children. Rusizi Border, Bukavu, DR Congo 25th May 2013.
From the series ‘CROSSINGS’, which offers a compelling glimpse into the lives of cross-border traders in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo and illustrates the potential of this trade to contribute to peace in the region.
