Socio-economists attribute and Somalian Merchants


Socio-economists attribute and Somalian Merchants
Many socio-economists attribute the rampant piracy that has plagued the Somali shores to the poverty. For some of these people, piracy is a necessity. Life on this side of life is dangerous and sometimes even fatal. This however does not deter them from engaging in these treacherous activities. Life in Somalia is however not all about the pillage. Many people earn an honest living for purposes of survival. Somalia’s economy has taken a beating from the tumultuous history. Conversely life has to go on. Although the climatic conditions in the country don’t support farming activities the nation still manages to turn out products such as banana’s, sorghum and corn. The farmers often take this down to large open air markets from where they sell their produce. These open air markets are common across the face of the African continent. Merchants are assigned plots from within which they conduct their business.  All varieties of business transpire at the same time and alongside each other. Bakara Market is one of the largest open air markets in the country.
