On the African continent, the informal economy shoots up as the prime source of revenue for its inhabitants. The street has become the center for all sorts of businesses. The black-market, which holds one the main streets, foot parts constitute the base of all human resources. Today, two-thirds of the population survive from this kind of activity. One can seek a place and constitute his business. Today, it is the only way to make ends meet in an still-developing society confronted with inequality. In YaoundÃ©, the capital of Cameroon, we carry out some sort of follow-up to make ends meet from their day's work - we make people see the reality of Africa. This continent boils with momentum and a hellish energy that its inhabitants posses, and their society is not compared to any one of its kind, because it is based on a strategy to make ends meet.
