Plenty of plantains

Women selling plantains

Women sell plantains at a roadside market near the University of Buea in Cameroon. The starchy bananas are a staple of the Cameroonian diet and were served at almost all the meals at the Buea International Conference for the Mathematical Sciences.


Vegetable hawkers pile up their goods on the side of the road during rush hour in Buea, Cameroon.


Cameroonians like their food spicy, and a boy sells fiery habanero peppers at a roadside market.

    I would like to use the photo of plantains for sale at roadside in a non-commercial booklet for a local history charity in the UK.
    May I use the image and what attribution should i use.
