Zimbabweans survive on bags of tricks

iafrica.com : "Victor Nyamutowa, a 37-year-old Zimbabwean carpenter, gives prospective customers invoices declaring in distinct black print: 'This quotation is valid for 0 days.'
'If I am lenient and give people invoices that allow them to come back and buy when it's convenient for them, the money they bring will not be enough to buy new materials,' says Nyamutowa. 'I will be the loser in the end.'
The carpenter, who owns a furniture workshop on the southern outskirts of Harare, knows customer credit is a luxury he cannot afford if he wants to keep his business running in a country with the world's highest rate of inflation."
