In Praia, capital city of Cape Verde, the city administration is carrying out new urban policies that are transforming the whole city, but specially the central area. These transformations aim to rebuild urban landscape to attract visitors, and with it, economic growth. These policies affect traditional activities of female street vendors in the area. This paper departs from an ethnographic account of the women's daily experiences, and looks at the ways that these transformations affect these women's lives, as well as at their strategies to keep working in the same activity and places.
