Formation, Recherche, et Environnement dans la Tshopo (FORETS), Democratic Republic of Congo

Charcoal sac being transported to the market, Yangambi, DRC. In order to have a good charcoal that people would buy the wood must be hard. Each oven produces from 10 to 15 big sacs of charcoal that are sold at 4usd in the local market and 11usd in Kisangani. Two weeks are required to cut and gather the wood and the time needed to burn it is around 10 days. Transportation costs are very high so profit is normally low.
