Caption:

These women sit in the blazing sun for hours with their huge sacks of dried beans. With the little money they earn they buy other supplies from the market. The crimson cloth on their heads is dual purpose. It acts as a sun shade and later a cushion as the women carry the large bundles home at the end of the day.
