Migrant creates designer shoe to help street-sellers abandon fake goods
Years ago, Lamine Sarr risked his life to travel from Senegal to Spain's Canary Islands, before making it to Barcelona where he sold counterfeit goods on the street. It's a common story that many people who are known as "manteros" – or street vendors- experience.
And it's not an easy life. Much of it is on the brink of poverty and constantly looking out for the police. But Sarr's story did not end there.
He has since helped create the Barcelona Street Vendors Union which is working to improve the lives of people in a similar situation. Since its creation, the union has helped around 120 people get their legal papers, including Sarr himself.
