The women are organized in market organizations and have access to quality health care right around the corner from where they work.

Lagos has a population figure of approximately 17,5 million inhabitants, which makes it is the second largest city in Africa, behind Cairo.  People go to the markets for practically everything: food, music, clothes, cell phones, IT products, to get a haircut or their car fixed. The images provide a good overview of these vital economic centres and the health care provided to these women.
