Questions: Cost of Living & Language for Children's Book


I am currently working on edits for a book set in Senegal. I am short on time (my publisher wants edits returned ASAP) and am trying to get information about the typical cost of things in a village or smaller town. I also have a few other questions, but right now the cost of basic items is my focus. If you could help me, or know someone that can, I would greatly appreciate it.

Cost of a loaf of bread?
Cost of a fish?
Cost of a whole chicken?
Cost of a pair of sneakers?
Cost of a children's book (Little Princess for example)?
Cost of a plastic bag of juice?
How much might a local fisherman make in a day?
How much might a mechanic make?
How much would a handmade bracelet cost (if sold by a girl on the street)?
How much is a piece of hard candy?
If you take a bus from the city to a village, what kind of bus would it be called?
Cost of private school near a village?
What is a typical village meal?
Breakfast? Dinner?
Are there any big superstitions in Senegalese culture?
Thank you so much for your help if you can.
