Alize's story

Alize is 52 and a mother of four whose focus on earning an income has always been on agriculture, while her husband has been working in a nearby bakery. Alize’s village has a large agricultural area and most of the villagers practice planting/harvesting and selling dried wheat, corn, fodder, potatoes, onions, beans and orchard fruits such as apples and cherries. The traditional meal of the region is stuffed peppers with cottage cheese.

In particular, Alize plants and harvests large quantities of beans, wheat, potatoes and peppers. (Note that she has been photographed among the warm beds in the backyard of her house where she had previously planted the seasonal veggies’ seeds that now have become seedlings and are ready to be planted outside). Alize wants to buy pesticides for her plants and prepare the soil for planting.
