7:33 am
so that makes the work very easy for me here. just. a short time later the pot is done. after deducting the cost of the material and rent for the workshop joseph earns about twenty going to c.d.'s for his medium sized parts the equivalent of three euros fifty. you can afford to pay to employees. he's doing a thriving business as are many others here. scrapyard operates much like an ant hill everyone has a job to do and they all work hard. anything that can be reused is repaired aggregate jeezy who came from nigeria specializes in laptops and performs wonders with them. starting

better suited to making cooking pots. precious little here goes to waste an old coach is now a roof. cab of a truck is being used as a break room. exercise equipment is being used to exercise. at the end of the workday joseph heads home he passes by the vendors who also sell his parts. like most of the people in this part of acra he's originally from the country's north it's a region that's been badly hit by drought and few people have work. joseph didn't either so he and his wife moved to accra. his neighbors in the slum showed him how to make cooking pots out of scrap metal. now he and his family own their own home
