It is a tough job to find a decent house in the slums. Magret is a displaced resident whose house has been demolished. ‘Due to low income you don’t know where to go, and sometimes have to build yourself a house in the fields’. Where the wind may blow away your roof. Or often houses collapse due to poor constructions. Constructors build very fast to get money, but that makes the structures weak. James, a constructor, tells: ‘You have to build on the underneath rocks to get a good foundation. Use the proper mix of mortar and take all the time it needs’.
