Unwanted second-hand items given a new life in Togo

The Togolese port of Lome has become a West African hub for trading second-hand goods from Europe and the US.

    Market traders in Togo are making huge profits selling unwanted clothes from Europe and the United States.
     
    The business has become so popular that people come from all over West Africa to buy the second-hand items.
