These are San people in the northern regions of South Africa. Earstwhile nomadic people with no special skills for the western style economy. A number of people try to earn something by selling the necklaces etc on the "stand" behind the children and posing for photographs. These people are poor, but try to fend for themselves and as is evident in the shot they are not destitute.
I think this shot to an extent depicts the plight of nomadic peoples world wide, who have to reconcile their life styles with a non-nomadic and fenced in modern society.
