AGADEZ, NIGER — <br />
<br />
23-year-old Silvé Namongo from Ivory coast reached Tripoli, Libya on May of 2015. He made several attempts to find a job in Tripoli but mentioned that he was mistreated by the locals. "They don't like the black man there". He was deported from Tripoli a month later and arrived in Agadez on June 28, 2015. It took him almost three years to save the $1,000 dollars it cost him to reach Libya. "You can't eat in Ivory Coast being a tailor" he concluded.
