Mubarak the Furniture Maker

Mubarak runs a small furniture business in Nalerigu on the hospital road. They build sofas, armchairs and beds out of wood, add latex padding, and then do the upholstery. Their little operation has about 8 employees and they display their finished products right outside on the side of the road.

Like most craftsmen in West Africa, Mubarak was more than happy to show us his work and be photographed with it.
