Charity   Mandishona was once a teacher in Zimbabwe. But she left the profession years ago when hyperinflation destroyed her salary's buying power. She says she and her husband, a former miner,ran a bar for a while, but it was destroyed by police five years ago in a major clean-up operation.   Mandishona now supports her family by selling some Zimbabwean handcrafts in neighboring countries.   Mandishona was speaking at a recent workshop in Pretoria, is sponsored by the United Nations Development Fund for women, known as UNIFEM. UNIFEM Director for Southern Africa   Nomcebo Manzini notes a recent survey  more than 700 informal cross-boarder traders in the region, shows that trade contributes significantly to the No.1 Millennium goal--reducing poverty.She noted the trade is dominated by women and as a result, it could also help achieve another Millennium Goal--reducing gender inequality. A Zimbabwean contributor to the survey, Joyce Malabama told the gathering that informal cross board trade is attractive to many, but carries many risks, especially as they travel. Malaba says some women survey said they were obliged to trade sexual favors for safe accommodation. And informal traders of both sexes face harassment and theft their goods by local police, boarder gards and other officials during their trips.
