Warung is an Indonesian word which literally means small shops. It sells daily needs, normally owned by women and located at the front part of the owners' house. In Indonesia warung can easily be found both in urban and rural areas. In this book I explore the warung issue from the perspective of warung owners and other members of the urban kampung (village) and how do they relate to the survival strategy of the urban poor. Warung plays an important role in helping poor people to survive, as it provides services which are suitable with their socio-economic condition. Data on warung, women, and poverty is based on a 12 months fieldwork in 2002, in Bandung, Indonesia. To collect the data, a combination of in-depth interviews, observation and participant observation were adopted.
