Who are the Madan Saras? Madan Saras are female Haitian merchants, street vendors who are the principal accumulators, movers, and distributors of domestic produce in Haiti. They are the link between the rural peasant farmers and the city dwellers. They bring the farmers' harvest to the local market. They walk long distance while carrying the produce on their head, donkeys, horses, mules, wheelbarrow, buses, trucks etc. They are the drivers and backbone of the informal Haitian economy.
