Faces_NuurNuur Abdela is 33 years of age and has his own small business in the Corraz Terra area of Mercato in Addis Ababa.  He collects used tin cans and repurposes them into lamps.  Nuur is proud of his small shop and his independence.

I met Nuur as he was opening his shop in a narrow and muddy alleyway in Mercato.  Like a rabbit warren, finding his shop again could prove difficult.  However the thousands of small businesses surrounding Nuur’s all have a similar ambition – to make enough money to build their business and feed their families.
