Djumabay's story

Djumabay lives in the Chaldovar village (Panfilovsk district, Chuysk region, Kyrgyzstan) and is raising one nine-year daughter. Djumabay was born in 1969 into a simple farmer's family. His father had a small farm, and since childhood, Djumabay helped his father with caring for the livestock and dreamed of having his own farm in the future. In 1988, after finishing school, Djumabay went to serve in the army. Upon his return to his native village in 1990, he studied to become a driver of agricultural machinery and was hired at the local collective farm as a tractor/combine driver. After some time, Djumabay got married and, using his salary, gradually purchased young livestock and grew clover and cereals; thus, expanding his farm. His daughter was born in 2002, and Djumabay was able to buy his own house for his family in 2003. Currently, thanks to Djumabay's persistence, his farm contains 3 dairy cows and 22 heads of sheep. In order to further develop his business, Djumabay requested a loan in the sum of 100,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" for the purchase of bulls for fattening up. In the future, Djumabay plans to increase livestock headcount and dreams of buying an off-road vehicle.
