Buying banknotes to survive Zimbabwe’s sky-high inflation


Soaring prices and widespread unemployment are forcing Zimbabweans to seek new ways to earn money. …

“I buy a broiler chicken for $6 and cut into 12 pieces which produces 12 plates of Sadza and chicken, giving me $12 per day. From there I deduct $1 for mealie meal, $1.50 for cooking oil and another $1.50 for tomatoes and onions, so my profit is around $2 or $1.50 per day, which I try and save for my licence. But then the police come again and I am back to square one.”
