During our stay in Nitundu village, we had the chance to meet some of the most inspiring people we met.
At the age of 26 years, Imani is already father of two boys, Abderaahman 4 years old, and Soudaissi 7 mounts, and a business man trying every day to make a living out of selling used shirts in the villages surrounding Lilongwe, the capital of Malawi.
In his small house made of two rooms, one bedroom, and a multifunctional room, Imani welcomed us with his warm smile, and comforting words, as we sat for tea break with his sister Assiato, while he ironed shirts he brought from Lilongwe the day before, using a steal iron that operates on shackles. For added value he washes the shirts and iron them, before selling theme in the markets.
Imani makes a daily trip at 5 am to the markets.
During the rainy season, the business gets slow for Imani, because rain makes it hard for him to showcase his shirts.
