Mrs. Siti A. is a food vendor. She sells mixed rice (fast food). Her food stall is located at Kupaon street, which is one of the main street in Bali as it is the main intersection for tourist hot spots such as Sanur, Kuta and Nusa Dua. She lives with her husband in a rented room.

She wakes up at 04.00 am everyday to start her food business. Her customers mainly are travelers at Kupaon street and also her neighbors. The money she earns is used to pay for the rent and also to help her to make end's meet.
