Deniza’s work consists of selling agricultural products, such as limes, mandarins and oranges, as well as preparing 2 fish farms for raising fish from the forest like paiche, gamitada, and paco, among others. The place where she sells and harvests her products is in front of her home; she has 8 hectares of land for this work.

She’s been growing and harvesting citrus products for 22 years. She started in this work since she was very young; when she got married, she decided to help her spouse, who was already a farmer and mainly worked selling citrus products. She says that she does the plowing of the land, the planting, irrigation, and the harvesting together with her husband, her grandson, and 2 workers. Later, along with her spouse, they transport the product to the market.

She feels that her work is profitable because of the good production of different species of limes that she harvests, which are very popular among her customers.

With the requested loan of 4000 soles, she will use it to purchase fertilizers and some tools, such as such as shovels, pickaxes, and machetes, among others, for better cultivation and care of her plants, and to have a better and abundant production.
