Talato Kabre, accompanied by her youngest child, Julien Rouamba (3), collects sand to sell for use in construction. It is her only income and she must sweep up sand, in a nearby open space, with a hand broom, sieving it, and then attempting to sell it. A small pile sells for CFA 1000 (GBP 1.30). She says she sometimes goes weeks without selling anything.
