'Chickpea sisters' cook up successful recipe

Group of women from countries like Libya and Iraq come together in London to run a catering service.

    They call themselves the Chickpea sisters and they come from Libya, Iraq, Eritrea, Somalia and other countries ridden with violence. 

    The group met at a southwest London community centre a few years ago, started cooking together and are now a growing business. 

    Their project is proving that starting a new business might be the way forward for migrants and refugees.
