The village is developing.... Our friend Alphonse has built and opened a shop in the village.
He stocks basic requirements like rice (umuceri), sugar (isukari), tomato paste, oil, potatoes, bottled water. He also sells shoes (flip flop sandals) and a small amount of second hand clothing.
Until now, the closest shop is in Mugonero which is a boat ride away. On Wednesday there is also a market in Mugonero. The villagers take their produce to sell and then they use the money fo buy other food that they don't grow themselves. Fortunately for me it is the season for mangoes and there are many many mangoes on the trees, also avocados are available all year round. Two of my favourite foods.
