Kydykbek's story

Kydykbek G. is a farmer from Tashkiya village. He is 43 years old and has three daughters aged 6, 8 and 10. Kydykbek was born into a large family with ten children but in spite of many difficulties, he was able to graduate from college as a builder and worked in this trade for 20 years. He is known as a very positive, hardworking person and a grateful son, who lives with his elderly parents and supports them.

In 1994, in order to find more means of subsistence for his large family, Kydykbek decided to start his own business in cattle breeding. Over the past 16 years, his efforts have been aimed at supporting and expanding his household. He has managed to multiply the number of cattle and today he has four milk cows, five sheep, five lambs and one horse. Also, Kydykbek began cultivating potatoes and holy clover on a plot of land and worked hard to get a good harvest of high quality products.

Now Kydykbek is applying for a loan of 120,000 KGS to buy five bull calves for fattening and resale. With the revenues from this investment, he plans to broaden his business by purchasing more cattle for fattening. His plans for the future include providing a higher education to his daughters; he dreams of seeing them as progressive-minded persons.
