Both Aisha and Hawa are head porters (called kayayei) in Kantamanto Market, one of the city's largest and busiest markets. Kayayei are young women (including adolescents) who work long days in the city markets, transporting materials for vendors or assisting buyers in carrying their shopping to board vehicles. Many also work for shop owners in the markets in re-stocking, packing, and tidying up. A year and a half ago, Hawa Latif left her hometown of Tulu, in Ghana's Northern Region, to come to Accra to earn a living working as a head porter. She quickly got a job working with a cassava and plaintain vendor, and day in and day out, she transports large loads of products for customers from her madame's shop to the customers' vehicles. It's physically tasking work; Hawa speaks of back aches and waist pains, but she can't take a day off just because she feels sick. On a good day, Hawa says she could earn as much as GHC35 (approximately USD $9.20); when the market isn't so good, perhaps just GHC10 (approximately USD $2.60). Aisha tells a similar story: she describes the physical challenges of carrying heavy loads, the low pay, the risks of violence and theft. At night, due to their inability to afford accommodation, many kayeyei sleep outside or in the marketplace, making them a target for thieves who would steal their day's wages.

Many kayayei in Accra hail from Ghana's northern regions. They come to the country's capital to make money and escape abject poverty at home. Among informal workers, kayayei are often the most marginalized and most subject to work-related injuries and bodily harm, but they lack necessary social protections. In 2012, WIEGO facilitated a health policy dialogue between 100 kayayei and represenatives of the Ministry of Health and National Insurance Scheme. The kayayei shared their stories and as a direct result of this dialogue, 1,000 kayayei were able to register and gain better information on available health care services through the Ghanaian National Insurance Scheme.

Anas took over the business from his parents, who migrated to Accra from the Upper West Region in northern Ghana. Long, 12-hour days are the norm for Anas, who's at his stall in Makola Market six days a week from 6 o'clock in the morning until 6 o'clock in the evening. He obtains his charcoal from suppliers in the Volta Region, who bring it in large lorry trucks to the market. From there, Anas and other charcoal sellers employ carriers and porters who transport the heavy sacks from the depot to stalls like his. Anas sells charcoal to his customers by weight; some purchase a full sack, he says, but most opt for varying sizes depending on household needs.

Description - ACCRA, GHANA: Anas Ibrahim, an established charcoal seller in Makola Market, was born into this trade, demonstrating the generational nature of informal work. Anas took over the business from his parents, who migrated to Accra from the Upper West Region in northern Ghana. Long, 12-hour days are the norm for Anas, who's at his stall in Makola Market six days a week from 6 o'clock in the morning until 6 o'clock in the evening. He obtains his charcoal from suppliers in the Volta Region, who bring it in large lorry trucks to the market. From there, Anas and other charcoal sellers employ carriers and porters who transport the heavy sacks from the depot to stalls like his. Anas sells charcoal to his customers by weight; some purchase a full sack, he says, but most opt for varying sizes depending on household needs. One of his greatest challenges is the respiratory issues associated with dealing in charcoal, he says, as it bothers his breathing from time to time. Photo taken August 10, 2015 in Accra, Ghana.

For more than 17 years now, Martha has been trading in fabrics, first in brightly coloured printed clothes and now in school uniform fabrics. Changing businesses to school uniform fabric was a deliberate decision and market opportunity, she said. "People are opening different schools, education is moving forward, that's why I want to trade in school uniforms," she explained. Martha's transition in trading goods demonstrates the entrepreneurism of many street vendors, who continually aim to maximize their sales and profits by selling goods in high demand. Martha is one of the more than 2,000 members of the Makola Market Traders Union, an affiliate of the Ghana Trade Union Congress.

Work as a kayeyei, head load porters, is rife with challenges. Aisha describes the physical challenges of carrying heavy loads, the low pay, the risks of violence and theft. At night, many kayeyei, due to their inability to afford accommodation, sleep outside or in the marketplace, making them a target for thieves who would steal their day's wages. A year and a half ago, Hawa Latif left her hometown of Tulu, in Ghana's Northern Region, to come to Accra to earn a living working as a kayayei.

It's physically tasking work; Hawa speaks of back aches and waist pains, but she can't take a day off just because she feels sick. On a good day, Hawa says she could earn as much as GHC35 (about USD $9) when the market isn't so good, perhaps just GHC10 (about USD $2.50). Photo taken August 10, 2015 in Accra, Ghana.

On a good day, Hawa says she could earn as much as GHC35 (about USD $9) when the market isn't so good, perhaps just GHC10 (about USD $2.50). Photo taken August 10, 2015 in Accra, Ghana.

Head load porters, known as kayayei, are young women (including adolescents) who migrate from the Northern regions of the country to the major cities, often in an attempt to escape abject poverty and earn money. In the markets, these young women are informally employed to conduct the hard physical labour of transporting materials for vendors, or assisting buyers in carrying their shopping to vehicles. Many also work for shop owners in the markets in re-stocking, packing, and tidying up. In 2012, WIEGO facilitated a health policy dialogue between 100 kayayei and represenatives of the Ministry of Health and National Insurance Scheme. The kayayei shared their stories and as a direct result of this dialogue, 1,000 kayayei were able to register and gain better information on available health care services through the Ghanaian National Insurance Scheme.

In the markets, these young women are informally employed to conduct the hard physical labour of transporting materials for vendors, or assisting buyers in carrying their shopping to vehicles. Many also work for shop owners in the markets in re-stocking, packing, and tidying up. In 2012, WIEGO facilitated a health policy dialogue between 100 kayayei and represenatives of the Ministry of Health and National Insurance Scheme. The kayayei shared their stories and as a direct result of this dialogue, 1,000 kayayei were able to register and gain better information on available health care services through the Ghanaian National Insurance Scheme.

Let's say you take [a loan in the amount of] 1,000 Ghana Cedis (approximately USD $262), every week you will repay 57 Ghana Cedis (about USD $15) for six months." With these small loans, vendors have been able to build capital and expand their businesses. Photo taken August 12, 2015 in Accra, Ghana. (Photo by Jonathan Torgovnik/Getty Images Reportage).

With city construction bringing infrastructure, including newly paved roads to the area, many vendors chose to leave the city's packed market places and relocate to vacant, unclaimed spaces on roadsides that are in close proximity to bus stations and taxi ranks and, most importantly, customers. These transport nodes brought in a large number of pedestrians and commuters who would stop and Bety's merchandise. In time, more and more vendors like Bety set up shop in these spaces, increasing the number of clothing, food, and other stalls and kiosks.

Unlike other vendors who sell during the day, Iris works in the late afternoon and evening, targeting the post-business day rush of commuters who travel through Kwame Nkrumah Circle, Accra's largest transport hub. Over the years, Iris has evolved from selling credit to school bags and ladies bags to selling small snacks, constantly working to identify the best goods to tap into consumer demands. "Bags are optional, it doesn't move as fast...when the season is over, students aren't buying schoolbags. I finally settled on this one [snacks], because at the end of the day, you will always make some [profit] out of it." Iris is a member of the Kwame Nkrumah Market affiliate of the national-level Ghana Trade Union Congress, which supports its members at this market by visiting vendor members, assessing their performance in interacting with and gaining customers, and providing supportive feedback.

Augustina is one of thousands of vendors who come to this major transport hub in the city to sell their goods to customers. With busses and local trotro minivans bringing commuters from all over the Greater Accra Region to this hub, every day has the potential to be a good business day for vendors like Augustina. It's a thriving, vibrant, and busy space both during the day and into the evening. Augustina is among those who take advantage of the evening slowdown to set up shop, creating a unique "night market" experience. Unlike the vendors with medium-sized stalls in the area's pedestrian marketplace, Augustina chooses to locate herself on the sidewalk, giving her the first opportunity to capture potential customers.

She's stayed here at Kantamanto for the past decade because conditions are better, she says.
