Here's an example of how prices have skyrocketed in Kenya because of the drought.
The conversion rate is simple: 100 Kenyan shilling equals a dollar.
|1 kilo of rice||40 KS||100 KS|
|3 liters of oil||250-300 KS||400 KS|
|1 kilo of maize||50 KS||70 KS|
|1 kilo of sugar||50 KS||150 KS|
I'm told milk powder is also much more expensive now — it's 30 KS for a tablespoon, the quantity someone in a village would buy. It's too costly to buy larger amounts.
