The Port Loco District in the Northwest of Sierra Leone is peaceful and politically stable. The region’s economy is mainly subsistence agriculture. There are some professional agriculture pilot projects for export, but they are mainly in the hands of foreign investors for export. Income is very low for most of the people (under $2 a day). Most jobs are informal and on daily wage limits. Around the airport and ferry, there are some hotels and travel-services but wealth does not seep through to the rural communities. The situation worsens as you distance from the Port-Loko-Road as the infrastructure in these areas is very poor.
