Bolot
Bolotu is 48 years old, married, and is raising four children. Bolot grew up in an ordinary and large farm family, and has helped his father keep up the farm since he was a child. His mother worked at a yarn and fabric factory in a nearby village. After graduating from school, Bolot went to driving school, where he studied for six months. After finishing his studies, he got a job at a local collective farm as a truck driver. In 1979, Bolot got married at the age of 17. At first Bolot and his wife lived with his parents. In 1982, after serving in the army for two years, Bolot returned to his hometown and to his family, and once again began to work at the local collective farm. That same year Bolot's first son was born, and a second son was born in 1984. That same year Bolot's wife got a job at a local store, and they used the money to buy livestock. Shortly thereafter, the collective farm allocated Bolot a parcel of land in his hometown, and, after having sold some of their livestock, Bolot built a small house with some outbuildings. Then Bolot and his family moved there from his parents' place. Bolot continued to work at the collective farm, and his wife got a job as a cashier at a local agricultural office.

Bolot's family grew, and so did their needs. A driver's salary was not enough, and Bolot got a job as a carpenter at a alcohol manufacturing plant. After working there for five years, he got laid off. In 2008, Bolot's oldest daughter was to be married, and Bolot had to sell some of his livestock to marry off his daughter and put together a dowry for her.

Right now, thanks to his persistence and industriousness, Bolot has 3 milking cows and 18 sheep on his farm. In order to increase his livestock headcount, Bolot has gone to Bai Tushum and Partners for a loan of 70,000 som (KGS) to purchase more livestock. Bolot's short-term plans include building a large barn and increasing his livestock headcount.

Болоту 48 лет, женат и воспитывает четверых детей.
Болот родился в простой и многодетной семье фермера, и с детства помогал отцу по хозяйству. Мать работала в соседнем селе на фабрике по производству ниток и тканей. После окончания школы Болот поступил на учебу в автошколу, где проучился 6 месяцев. Закончив учебу, устроился в родном колхозе на работу в качестве водителя грузовых автомашин. В 1979 году в возрасте 17 лет Болот женился, и первое время Болот с женой жили с родителями. В 1982 году, отслужив в армии два года, Болот вернулся в родное село, к своей семье, и снова стал работать в местном колхозе. В этом же году у Болота родился первый сын, а в 1984 году – второй. В этом же году супруга Болота устроилась на работу в местный магазин, и на заработанные деньги Болот с женой покупали скот. Через некоторое время колхоз выделил Болоту участок земли в родном селе и распродав часть скота, Болот построил на участке небольшой дом с надворными постройками, куда он со своей семьей переезжает от родителей. Болот по-прежнему продолжал работать в колхозе, супруга устроилась в местную сельскую управу в качестве кассира.
Семья Болота росла, и росли потребности. Зарплаты шофера не хватало, и Болот устроился на работу на спиртовой завод в качестве плотника. Проработав там 5 лет, попал под сокращение. В 2008 году выходит замуж старшая дочка Болота и для того, чтобы выдать замуж дочь и собрать ей приданное, Болоту пришлось распродать часть скота.
В данное время, благодаря упорству и трудолюбию, у Болота в хозяйстве имеется 3 дойных коровы и 18 овец. В целях дальнейшего увеличения поголовья скота, Болот обратился в компанию «Бай – Тушум и Партнеры» за кредитом в сумме 70,000 сом (KGS) на покупку дополнительных голов скота. В ближайших планах Болота - строительство большого сарая и увеличение поголовья домашней скотины.
