Sheqo's story

Sheqo, who has been photographed here with one of her grandsons, wants to buy a dairy cow. She currently plants and sells beans, potatoes and natural flowers and also has some cherry orchards.

Sheqo is married and has three children. She lives in a rural area that has a cold climate. The soil in her area is good and supports vegetable growth, such as potatoes, tomatoes, onions, wheat and corn.

A bit about her village: The traditional foods of her village are “lakror,” which is like a pie made of two pieces of thick filo pastry stuffed with wild greens, dairy products or a mix of onions and tomatoes, and "petanik," which is made of dried thin filo pastry stuffed with cooked beans. As for traditional costumes, the most common are the white fez and felt.
