Workshop with Binta

Sunday, November 29th, 2009

091129binta work

In the workshop with Binta we combined the track we collected this year, where she visits the Dutse market, with the one we collected last year, were she visits the fruit market in Kubwa. Both locations are considered to be satellite towns of Abuja. This way we could discuss both markets, and find out how she makes the decision to go to one or the other. From the tracks it becomes clear that Binta makes several stops along the route, to sell to customers. I am looking forward accompanying here next Saturday, so I get a clue how this is organized.
