Lucia Liaza, 50, poses at her market stall where she sells food and spices in Gosen City, a slum in the Villa Maria del Triunfo municipality on the outskirts of Lima April 10, 2014. Liaza came from the violence-torn city of Ayacucho 20 years ago. She says that just recently has she been able to afford a few luxuries that she couldn't previously. A number of residents in Gosen City, a slum that grew up near a garbage dump on the outskirts of Lima, have seen their lives improve as parts of Peru feel the effects of years of economic growth. Peru's President Ollanta Humala has pledged to cut poverty to 15 percent by the end of his term in July 2016. He is still a long way from his goal, but the poverty rate is coming down, falling just under two percentage points to 23.9 percent in 2013 from the prior year. Picture taken April 10, 2014.
