Democratic Republic of Congo Jackson Kamate, who was displaced from his home in North Kivu, harvests beans at his job as a day laborer in Komanda, Democratic Republic of Congo. Jackson is paid 1600 Congolese francs (nearly $1) a day to harvest and carry the beans to be threshed. Despite record harvests, it’s hard for farmers in this area to sell crops since transportation is so difficult.
