Zaydullo D. was born and raised in the Republic of Tajikistan. He grew up in a large family and, from early childhood, he helped his parents in the field where his family cultivated vegetables. After serving in the army, Zaydullo returned home and began to work as a cinema operator. He was 30 years old when he married, and he became the father of five children.
In 1995, Zaydullo moved with his family to Kyrgyzstan. Using the money he had earned, he bought a house and started to work at the local state farm. In order to find additional means of subsistence for his large family, Zaydullo decided to engage in cattle breeding and cultivating vegetables on the plot of land. Using his starting capital of 3,000 KGS, he managed to raise his floating capital and earn 4,000 KGS monthly. Today, his farm has three bull-calves and still needs to be developed. For this purpose, Zaydullo plans to use this loan of 50,000 KGS to increase the number of cattle on his farm. Eventually, Zaydullo plans to provide higher education for his children and build a house for his family. Being a very purposeful and positive person, Zaydullo works hard to support his family and provide them with a prosperous future.
