Bussines in Somalia
This is a fail state where economy doesn't exist all, every man for himself. There is some help for children and women from slamic organisation etc.
As Somalia don't have really economy, we illustrated Ali's Story on image below.
Ali Abdinur Samo, 26, a retired Somali pirate, now lives in Eastleigh, a ramshackle enclave in Nairobi, Kenya. Samo is looking to invest some of
his pirate loot.
NAIROBI, Kenya - Young, newly rich and restless, Ali Abdinur Samo wasn't long for his dead-end homeland of Somalia. The 26-year-old recently
decamped to Kenya, East Africa's land of opportunity, to put his wealth to work.
"I'm looking around," said Samo, whose close-cropped hair is already flecked with gray, an occupational hazard in his line of work. "I know people
who are buying shops, hotels, properties. The economy is strong here, not like back home."
Samo, if you hadn't guessed, is a Somali pirate.
"Was a pirate," he corrected. After making about $116,000 in two heists, Samo bowed to his worried parents' pleas and took early retirement in
Nairobi, the Kenyan capital, where the fast-growing yet shady economy has quickly become a favorite haven for pirates with ransom money to spend.
The pirates often describe themselves as saviors with AK-47s, an ad hoc coast guard that's retaliating against foreign countries for fishing
illegally off Somalia's coast while civil war consumes the government. Follow the trail of their multimillion-dollar booty into neighboring Kenya, however, and you grasp the pirates' capitalist ambitions.
Tell us if there are others business doing well or bad?
