Alvarito Ayme, 4, casts a beseeching look at his mother, Ermalinda, who is buying grain and flour from the local indigenous coop in Simiatug, Ecuador in the hope that she will buy him a sweet from the display counter. His father, Orlando, sold two of his sheep at this weekly market in the indigenous community of Simiatug for $35 US in order to buy potatoes, grain and vegetables for his family.
