I absolutely think so, the street merchants are the driving force of what little economic vitality that exists.

They are everywhere, in every corner selling anything and everything.

They do it for their children and family and they never tire of coming back. These individuals are courageous and they truly are the movers and shakers of Haiti's economy.
