Kamchibek is 58 years old. He has three grown children – two sons and one daughter.
In his area of the country, farming is one of the main activities, so Kamchibek decided to do this. He started his business in 2001 and managed to expand by renting land where he planted wheat. To broaden his business activities by breeding cattle, in 2009 he obtained his first loan of 80.000 KGS which was repaid without any delays. Today his farm has 35 sheep, 6 cows and one horse.
Kamchibek plans to use this loan of 80,000 KGS to purchase more cattle. With the revenue, he wants to broaden his business activities. Kamchibek is a very positive and hard-working person who believes that his efforts will lead his family to a prosperous future.
