Cape Verdean cook Benvinda Mendes, 73, locally known as Totta, takes a break as costumers eat at her restaurant in Cova da Moura neighborhood in Lisbon, Portugal. Mendes was born in the Cape Verdean island of Santa Catarina. There she was a construction worker, building roads and other infrastructures. In the 1980s she moved to Portugal seeking a better life for her and her family - but when she got to Cova da Moura there was no running water or other basic services. Now, she runs a family restaurant in the neighbourhood and dances the traditional 'batuque', a music genre and dance style from Cape Verde that she learned with her late mother. 'Batuque' is set to feature in Madonna's upcoming new record. REUTERS/Rafael Marchante

Dulce Fernandes poses with her Catholic figures for a portrait in her room in Cova da Moura neighbourhood in Lisbon, Portugal. "I always have a smile on my face even though I'm sick," Dulce said. She has problems in her knees, which makes it hard for her to walk. Dulce came to Portugal in 2000. "I moved to Portugal to seek a better life, there were no jobs in Cape Verde. I have four children, without a father. I'm a strong woman," she said. Like many other residents in Cova da Moura, Dulce collects Catholic saints. Cape Verde is a predominantly Catholic country. In her tiny house she also has plants she uses for medical purposes, something prevalent in the neighbourhood, just like in Cape Verde. Dulce said she was evicted from her previous home in another similar neighbourhood in Lisbon, which is being destroyed to make space for a new urban development. REUTERS/Rafael Marchante
