TO GO WITH AFP STORY by Rigoberto Diaz A shopkeeper (R) listens to a customer at a store where people can use their 'libreta', a ration card which since 1963 has allowed Cubans to buy basic food supplies at cheap -- and heavily subsidized -- prices, in Santiago de Cuba, on July 10, 2013. The ration book, with 50 years of existence in Cuba, was a economic solution for many families in the island, but at present the products offered are barely enough for the survival of many Cubans with low wages. The government has put into practice a process for their gradual elimination. AFP PHOTO/STR (Photo credit should read --/AFP/Getty Images)
