This data offers an explicit examination of how Francophone African informal immigrant entrepreneurs experience xenophobia while conducting their business in Pretoria. The data presents answers to questions such as; do individual Francophone African informal immigrant entrepreneurs experience xenophobia while conducting their business differently from Anglophone or Lusophone African informal immigrant entrepreneurs in Pretoria? How does the individual experience of xenophobia among Francophone African informal immigrant entrepreneurs who conduct informal business on sidewalks, differ from those who conduct informal business at street corners, on municipal stalls or in small shops?

The researcher employed an interpretivist methodological approach and a case study method to conduct qualitative in-depth interviews with open-ended questions to collect data to understand how Francophone African informal immigrant entrepreneurs are discriminated against by South Africans while conducting their business in Pretoria; to determine the type of harassment that Francophone African informal immigrant entrepreneurs experience in Pretoria while conducting their business; to establish the perpetrators of xenophobic attacks against Francophone African informal immigrant entrepreneurs while conducting their business; and to understand why Francophone African informal immigrant entrepreneurs in Pretoria are attacked while conducting their business.
