For many residents of Nepal, the meager sales garnered from makeshift kiosks such as this one mean the difference between starvation and eating, especially since the devastating earthquake that struck Nepal in 2015. She sells fresh fruits and vegetables, which she likely grows on a tiny plot near her home, as well as snacks such as potato chips and candy bars. She wraps herself in a colorful shawl to ward off the cold temperatures that descend on Kathmandu beginning in November. Her house, like most others in Nepal, likely has no source of heat, and warm clothing is the only defense against freezing.
