The photo was taken at the Kimironko Market in Rwanda. Locals gather here to buy all their fresh produce and essentials. I visited often to buy mangos from Brenda, the woman in the center of the photo. I was struck by the pride each vendor had in the quality of their fruits, vegetables, and meat. The farmers and vendors play an integral role in the health of the people of Kigali.
