(CBS News) In Haiti’s rural provinces, life is sparse, even by local standards. Malnutrition is rampant, and 78 percent of the population survives on less than two dollars a day.
Adremene Gracia, however, is the exception. In a country with more than 60 percent unemployment, she has a full-time job. Gracia makes something called Nourimanba, a peanut-based malnutrition cure.
Not only does her work help save starving children, it allows her to support two of her own.
“Just having a stable job is wonderful, for the money and to be able to send my kids to school,” she said through a translator, in her native Creole.
