A woman named Lidia lives in El Alto, Bolivia. She earns 3,000 Bolivianos per month (approx. 430 USD) as a domestic worker. She cooks using affordable, local farm produce, the only food available to her in her community, and walks to work everyday.
Joe lives in San Francisco, Northern California. He earns 98,550 USD per year as a customer success manager in a local tech firm.
