Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo

A porter at Onatra port pulls a cart loaded with sacks of imported goods and a disabled man and his wheelchair. As disabled people pay less import fees savvy traders use them to import cargo cheaply from Congo Brazzaville. As soon as the goods leave the port, the 'importers' transfer them to the traders, in exchange for their commission.
