Five years ago, Mustafa was a farmer in the Syrian city of Raqqa – infamous as the de facto capital of militant group Daesh (ISIS).Mustafa said he wasn't sure what he could do to support his family, asking, "What can a farmer do for a family of five without a farm?" That is when, he said, he decided to buy his three-wheeled wooden cart and make his own mobile garden shop. Although Mustafa says that he's happy with his job in Lebanon, he hopes to return to Syria when conditions allow.
