|From The Trip, pt. 2: Mountains to Lima|
This means that farmers are generally located in town within walking distance of the market, producing less crops, but more or less subsisting on what they grow.
Also, because people are poor here, and cars and gas are really really expensive its not surprising that public transportation is really good, except none of the transportation is public. Its all privately run. All the buses are run by tour companies, and all the taxis and motorcars are operated by the driver, sort of like the taxi system in America, but I don´t think you need a badge to be a business owner. Transportation costs are quite reasonable.
