Madame Aziamadi Massan is the neighborhood herbalist

Madame Aziamadi Massan, 70, is the neighborhood herbalist. At her stand in the streets of Bè-Ablogamé, a rundown neighborhood in the port district of Lomé, Togo’s capital, she sells cures for malaria, high blood pressure, anemia, eye problems, sexual impotence and anything else that ails you. Aziamadi Massan is a member of the Délali Association, a mutual aid network organized by Colette Desseh, the wife of the neighborhood’s chief. Photo: © Stephan Gladieu / World Bank
