Cairo small businesses boom amid turmoil

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

    Since the revolution in Egypt, foreign investors have been shunning the country, fearful of political instability.

    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.
