Street sellers’ new business - 5th July 2021

Street sellers are making a new sports shoe. The sellers come from Africa. They live in Spain. They sell shoes on the street.

The sellers usually sell cheap copies. They had some problems with the police.

Now, they have their own company. Their company makes sports shoes. They called the shoes ‘Ande Dem’. This means ‘walking together’. Factories make these trainers in Spain and Portugal.

The name of their company is ‘Top Manta.’ The name comes from an African language. A ‘manta’ is a blanket. The sellers put the shoes on a blanket on the street.

They put a picture of a blanket on the trainers. The blanket looks like the sea. The sellers came from Africa in small boats.

The trainers have African colours. They are strong shoes. People can wear them for work outside.

The trainers cost €115. This money helps the sellers’ families. Other trainer companies don’t help poor people.
