She's unemployed and is doing this to earn some extra income for her family of four. Khayelitsha is one of the poorest and fastest growing townships in South Africa.

Most people don't find work and the unemployment rate is very high, together with lot of violence and a growing HIV-Aids epidemic itÕs a harsh area to live in.
