Alfred's is a commercial garden labourer at Kusamala and an avid soccer player. His home in Landscape is a demonstration of a typical small plot Malawian yard. It's earth is hard packed and dusty and little to no vegetation survives around the home. The few trees that are seen will green up come the wet season, but the soil is providing little support for these struggling trees.
