This study explored how Guangzhou, a Chinese commercial city, attracts Africans for trade. Specifically, it used the case of Malian Muslim Businessmen (MMB) to investigate the lifestyle, challenges and influence of their religion in daily activities. The study finds that religion does not influence their business practice. The study also finds that many Africans, including MMB move to Guangzhou due to business while preserving the same food, cultural and religious practices they shared in their home country.
