To 76-year-old Barton, retiring is not an option.
He and his wife, Namale, are looking after their oldest son, who is too sick to work, as well as his two young children. Making and selling bricks, Barton finds it hard to make ends meet. He used to run a chicken business. "If I could just get another loan or a pension, I would start the chicken business again, and hire someone to help me."

Who says older people are helpless and can’t be a resource for their families? Good health adds life to years!
