Huancayo, Peru, Jan. 23, 2006 - Three generations of women sell coca leaves near the Mercado Mayorista. The leaves, locally known as mate de coca, are steeped as tea and are used to aid in digestion, altitude sickness and to stave off hunger for the poor. In Peru, 54% of the population lives below the poverty line of $54 per month, and another 20% fall under the extreme poverty line of $27 per month.
