Ruth's Legumes

This video follows Ruth, a small-scale legume trader in Lilongwe, as she goes about her work.  It highlights some things about her life and business.

These small-scale livelihoods are key to urban well-being throughout African cities, but they are a neglected area of research and policy. As urbanization proceeds and as a focus on urban spaces intensifies, it is critical to understand how these livelihoods work, as well as how to support them so that those engaging in them can enjoy increased profit margins.
