Men load a wagon pulled by cattle with harvested millet on the outskirts of Maradi, Niger on Sept. 25, 2010. The population of Niger is hit yearly with a chronic food crisis that generally peaks between May and September. Since the first harvest was particularly bad this year, many families are using the September harvest to pay back debts from the intervening months when food was scarce. That means that despite plenty of food in the fields, many families still go hungry.
