Two Ivorians, considered to be middle class by the African Development Bank, tell the BBC’s Tamasin Ford how they survive on between $2  and $20 a day.  Konan Kouassi Vercruysses (left), 26, runs a phone booth with his cousin. He works five-hour shifts, six days a week and attends university. Kouadio Koffi, 29, is a security guard who shares a one-room house with his cousin. He works 12-hour night shifts, six days a week.
