Refugee mother and daughter in refugee camp

Fane, a single mother of six children, is very entrepreneurial! All seven are refugees in N’djamena, Chad since 2013 when they left Bangi, the Central African Republic. Here Fane is sitting with her youngest daughter in their home in a refugee camp. Women are some of the poorest refugees, but Fane is working hard to feed her children and has a true entrepreneurial spirit. She makes spaghetti out of the home grown corn and sells it together with the benje cookies she also makes every day. Even so it is hard to makes ends meet for Fane.
