Koffi Cecile, 40, carries spent dirt away after drawing out salt from it in the village of Djegbadji near Ouidah, Benin, on Friday, Jan. 11, 2013. Artisanal salt farmers in this village in Benin dig off the top layer of soil near their hut homes, then filter water through the dirt to draw out salt. They later boil the water to collect the salt and sell it. On average, they sell enough for two salt shakers for about $1. (AP Photo/Sunday Alamba)
