Drawing on the experiences of a population of women informal sector traders in Harare, Zimbabwe, the report documents patterns of differentiation within the sector amidst the generalised decline in working and living conditions associated with the structural adjustment programme. Most attempts at studying the informal sector have generally tended to emphasise the uniformity of the experiences of the people who operate within it. Where an effort has been made to develop a more nuanced understanding of the sector, as is the case with de Soto's study, the assumption has always been that the mobility of the operators is from lower to higher level activities that coincide with the tapping of increased opportunities for accumulation. This report challenges both the notion of the uniformity of the informal sector and of the unidirectional upward mobility of the informals.
