PoCs in the DRC have right to work permits but formal work opportunities are scarce. There is advocacy work to ensure that when refugees travel to towns, they may access banks with their ID cards, however, currently, there are no banks within the vicinity of refugee hosting sites-additionally, not all refugees have ID cards. 26.4% of PoCs in the DRC are living in refugee camps while 72.8% are living out of camps but not in an urban setting. The main livelihoods for refugees in DRC are as follows; 26.1% are students, 24% work as farmers or animal breeders and 29.9% work in the agriculture industry. It is important to note that over 60% of unemployed PoCs, including students constitute a workforce that can actively participate in activities that can lead to economic development for both PoCs and the host communities.
