Frustrated by tough economic times in the United States, Sammy Maina is packed, ready and waiting to return to Kenya.

"I'm fed up and finished with the US," declares Mr Maina, 33, owner of a prepaid calling card firm, Myaatel, and a money transfer company, Doubles Xpress, that caters for African immigrants.

But with money scarce because of the recession, fewer and fewer immigrants can afford to purchase his international phone cards or pay to use his money transfer services.

"People here don't have money any more," complains Mr Maina, who says the "American Dream" of a big house, flashy car and piles of money was unrealistic.

Instead he found long hours, little pay and limited joy.

Life in America is so demanding, says Mr Maina, that it has cost several of his African friends their marriages and even led some to commit suicide.

"It is very difficult right now and so many people are packing and going back to Kenya in big, big numbers."

To uz aj v Afrike sa zije lepsie ako V Amerike????????????

To, ze ci je niekomu lepsie v Afrike, sa musi kazdy rozhodnut sam. Este pred jeho odchodom by som vsak chcel vediet, ze kolko africanov tento podnikatel podviedol alebo dlzi peniaze... Nech si kupi pekny dom v Kenyi a nech nadava na zlu Ameriku. Viem vsak, ze vatsina jeho spoluobcanov by dala hocico za to, keby sa mohli dostat do tej "zlej" Ameriky.

nuz at si jde kazdy kam chce ,ale kdyz tak nadavaji na USA ,udelal bych veskere zablokovani jejich majetku /konta/penez ,ktere naposilali tem svym chudym pribuznym v Africe a ktere maji jeste v hotovosti anebo v bance .Jak jsi chudy do USA prisel ,tak i chudy odejdi.
Za cely pobyt v USA ,urcite ziskali nejake vedomosti a praxe,ktere ted po prijezdu do Afriky budou zuzitkovane ve prospech jich samych.Budou doma na africke pude ty ,ktery se budou urcite mit lepe ,nez ty chudaci co nikdy nikde nebyli a zili jen z toho co jim mohla poskytnout Afrika.
