Cotton is a major cash crop in Affem Kabye. Villagers transport their cotton on cattle carts to the village's market area and for the next 7-10 days, weigh their cotton and load it onto enormous trucks. One year the truck laden with cotton, got stuck in a large mud puddle on the dirt road that leads to the village. Another truck had to come pull it out of the mud.
