40 year old Ibtisam Abaker only had primary school education before she got married. Now, she is divorced with five children, the oldest 12, and the youngest, 6. Ibtisam lives in Banat, west of Kassala. She sells mainly kisra, a popular Sudanese bread made from sorghum. She usually wakes up at 2:30 in the morning to start baking the kisra; then at 8:00 am she hires a donkey cart to the Banat Square 12 market where she sells her goods under the hot sun. She was sick on most days from the heat.
