Sarsembai K. was born in the village of Akbashat in the Jayilskiy region of the Chuyskaya province in Kyrgyzstan. He is married and lives with his youngest son, daughter in law and granddaughter. Sarsembai was born in 1953 in a simple family of a farmer with many children (five sons). His father was doing agriculture and animal husbandry and his mother was a homemaker. After finishing the tenth grade Sarsembai enrolled in college to become a driver of trucks and tractors. After finishing his studies he got a job in his hometown's collective farm as a driver. In 1973 being twenty years of age Sarsembai went to serve in the army and continued working in the collective farm after he returned. In 1977 Sarsembai got married and a year later his daughter was born. At first Sarsembai and his wife and daughter lived with his parents and brothers. But some time later the collective farm where he worked had provided him with a plot of land in his home village for building a house where in time Sarsembai has built his home and all the necessary annexes. In 1980 his second daughter was born and five years later his son was born and then another daughter two years after that. His family was growing and Sarsembai continued working as a driver as well as breeding cattle and doing agriculture. In 2006 Sarsembai was able to save some money and buy a truck ZIL which he uses to transport agriculture products and in free time provide services to his neighbors by transporting freights. Additionally he annually rents out about ten hectares of land where he grows sugar beets, barley and clover. This business helped Sarsembai give good dоwry to his three daughters and wed his son. At this time because of his persistence and industry Sarsembai has two milk cows, one calf, eight sheep and a ZIL truck. Sarsembai plans to use the loan of 70,000 som to buy fertilizer and seeds for sowing. In the future Sarsembai dreams to buy a house for his son not far from his house.
