Kochkonbek's story

Kochkonbek is 54 years old, married and has two children. Kochkonbek spent all his life working in the agricultural field, first starting as a driver at a collective farm and then as a handyman. In search of an additional source of income for his family, he organized his own farm in 1996 with a starting capital of 5,000 som (KGS) and started to breed livestock and farm land. Today, Kochkonbek's farm contains one cow, ten sheep, one horse and also an apple orchard, into cultivating which he invests his whole soul. In order to further develop his business, Kochkonbek requested a loan in the sum of 50,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" company to purchase sheep and seedlings of new apple varieties. In the future, he plans to increase his livestock headcount and expand his apple orchard.
