    Newer Older

    A young girl sells food at a local market in the Village of Chiromawa.New research is changing how we understand what it means to be poor. Incomes of those living in poverty are not only low but are also irregular and unpredictable. One day a person may earn several dollars, while the next three days they earn nothing. They don't have a steady flow of cash for day-to-day living, to make investments, pay bills, or plan for the future. (Kano State, Nigeria, 2010)
