Shirinbay was born in the Karl Marx village (Osh region, Kyrgyz Republic). He is married and has four children. Shirinbay was born into a simple family of a shepherd. He was the oldest among his brothers and, thus, devoted the most time taking care of the household and helped his father to take care of livestock. After finishing school, he was drafted into the army in 1979, where he served two years. After the army, Shirinbay went to the agricultural college in the city of Osh to learn the profession of a grain production technologist. He also got married that same year. At first, he lived with his parents in his native village and got a job in the agricultural collective. Having saved some money, Shirinbay bought a small house in the Kara-Dobo village (Panfilovsk district, Chuysk region, Kyrgyzstan) in 1991. The family grew vegetables and kept livestock on the land allotted to them by the collective farm. As Shirinbay's family grew, so did their needs, and they decided to move to the Novonikolaevka village because it is located near the city of Karabalta (Jayilsk district, Chuysk region, Kyrgyzstan), which is the center of the district. Their business gradually developed. Shirinbay used the profits from selling livestock litter and milk to buy himself a car, which he uses to this day to provide people with a taxi service. Also using income from animal husbandry, Shirinbay married off his daughter, two older sons and helped one of them to buy a house nearby. Currently, thanks to Shirinbay's entrepreneurship and persistence, his business has 20 dairy cows. In order to continue increasing livestock headcount, Shirinbay requested a loan in the of 100,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" company. In the future, Shirinbay dreams to eventually marry off his youngest son and bring his friendly family with grandchildren together at one big table in his home.

Ширинбай родился в селе Карл Маркс (Ошская область, Кыргызская Республика). Женат и имеет 4 детей.
Ширинбай родился в простой семье чабана. Он был самым старшим из братьев, и поэтому большую часть времени посвящал домашним хлопотам, помогал отцу по уходу за скотом. Окончив школу, в 1979 году его призвали в армию, где отслужил два года. Отслужив, Ширинбай поступил в Сельхоз техникум в городе Ош, по специальности технолог зерновых производств и в этом же году женился.
Первое время жил с родителями, в родном селе устроился на работу в колхоз. В 1991 году накопив немного денег, Ширинбай покупает небольшой дом в селе Кара-Добо (Панфиловский р-он, Чуйская область, Кыргызстан). На выделенной им колхозом земле они выращивали овощи и содержали небольшое хозяйство. Постепенно семья Ширинбая росла, росли потребности, и было решено переехать в село Новониколаевка, так как это село находится вблизи города Карабалта (Жайылский р-он, Чуйская область, Кыргызстан), который является центром района. Постепенно хозяйство разрасталось. На доходы от продажи приплода и молока Ширинбай купил себе автомашину, на которой по сей день предоставляет населению услуги такси. Так же на доходы от животноводства, Ширинбай выдал замуж дочь, женил двух старших сыновей и помог купить одному из них дом по соседству.
В данное время, благодаря предприимчивости и упорству Ширинбая в хозяйстве насчитывается 20 дойных коров. Для дальнейшего увеличения поголовья скота, Ширинбай обратился в компанию «Бай – Тушум и Партнеры» за кредитом в сумме 100,000 сом (KGS). В будущем, Ширинбай мечтает со временем женить младшего сына и собирать всю свою дружную семью с внуками за одним большим столом в своем доме.
