Churek
Churek is a widow and has raised four children. Currently Churek lives with her daughter-in-law and her grandson, while her son is away to Russia to earn money.

Churek was born into a simple family of a sheep herder. After school she attended Prjewalski co-op institute to earn her degree as a saleswoman. Upon finishing her studies Churek moved to the Moskovski region where she had relatives and started working as a milkmaid in the "Druzhba" farming co-op in the Aleksandrovka village. In 1981 she married a tractor driver from the same co-op. The young family received a house from the co-op's administration and Churek's four children were born there. They lived and worked for the co-op for 20 years, raised their children there, slowly purchased their own herd of livestock. After the farming co-op broke apart with the fall of the Soviet Union, they lost their jobs and were forced to sell their livestock and move to the Rovnoe village in Panfilovski region, where they were able to buy a house. Churek's husband started working as a mechanic in "Shapak" farming co-op and Churek took care of the house and children.

In 2003 Churek and her husband decided to start raising livestock again and purchased a heifer. Their livestock business began with 5,000 som (KGS) and it grew to yield 7,000 som (KGS) monthly profits. In 2010 Churek's husband passed away and she became her family's main provider. Her hard work and determination allowed Churek to continue her husband's business and currently her herd has two milk cows and a heifer. In order to purchase more animals she has turned to "Bai-Tushum and Partners" for a loan of 100,000 som (KGS). Churek is planning to use the profits from this loan to purchase more animals and in the future save enough money for her grandson's education.

Муж Чурек работал трактористом в этом же колхозе. Молодой семье руководство колхоза выделило дом, в котором и родились четверо детей Чурек. 20 лет семья Чурек жила в с.Александровка, за это время они с мужем обзавелись хозяйством, вырастили детей. Из- за распада колхоза, в котором работала Чурек и ее муж, им пришлось продать скот и переехать в село Ровное Панфиловского района, где они на вырученные деньги купили дом. Муж Чурек устроился механизатором в колхоз «Шапак», а Чурек в это время занималась домашним хозяйством и детьми. В 2003 году Чурек с мужем решили заняться животноводством и купили телочку. Начав со стартовой суммы в 5,000 сом (KGS), они смогли развить хозяйство с ежемесячной прибылью в сумме 7,000 сом.
2010 году Чурек потеряла любимого мужа и стала единственным кормильцем семьи. Упорный труд и настойчивость позволили Чурек продолжить начатое с мужем дело. На сегодняшний день в ее хозяйстве насчитывается две коровы и 1 телка и в целях увеличения поголовья скота, Чурек обратилась в компанию «Бай Тушум и Партнеры» за кредитом в сумме 100,000 сом (KGS). Доходы от кредита Чурек планирует вкладывать в увеличение поголовья, а в будущем – накопить деньги на обучение внука.
