Kenya Alfred Mutua, 26, waits for customers in the Umoja One area in Nairobi County, Kenya, where he sells water, in early January. The Kenyan government introduced water rationing in the capital city in response to a water shortage, which increased demand for Mutua’s water. He now sells 18 liters (4.75 gallons) of water for 50 Kenyan shillings (48 cents), up from last month’s price of 20 shillings (19 cents).
