Cairo small businesses boom amid turmoil

Even in absence of foreign investors, small businesses in the Egyptian capital are thriving.

    Despite the economic turmoil, however, hundreds of young entrepreneurs have bucked the trend. While big business has been staying away, some small firms have been thriving.
