The DRC is one of the poorest countries on the planet with one of the highest proportions of millionaires. While 70% of the population lives on less than a dollar a day, 6% are millionaires.

In the capital, Kinshasa, these new rich live in the heart of secure and luxurious enclaves, while elsewhere, children work several hours a day tens of meters underground extracting coltan.
