Little pink beggar

From all the children I've seen in Myanmar, this little one was by far the dirtiest. I met her in front of a temple gate with her mother, who was as dirty as her daughter. I offered her some sweets and she immediately took them and went back to her sit. I left the place with a sad feeling.
However, when I was back home I had a chat with my 6yo daughter about this photo:
Me: : What do you think about this little girl? Is she poor or rich?
She: She is rich !
Me: How did you reach to this conclusion?
She: Look mommy, she has money!
To such an direct and blunt answer I was speechless.
