Omburek was born in the Panfilov village, of the Chuy region in Kyrgystan. He grew up in a very large family, with 3 sisters and 3 brothers while his parents were simple workers. After finishing high school Omburek was trained as a tractor driver and helped his parents with their farm. In 1985 Omburek married and chose to remain living with his parents who were raising cattle and farming at the time. His first daughter was born in 1985 and in 1995 Omburek became a father of a second girl. After working with the community farm (kolhoz) for three years Omburek decided to start his own farm. He used a starting sum of 10,000 som (KGS) to purchase a cow and start his cattle raising business. At first Omburek has fallen on hard times, as towards the end of the 90s his family grew to six people and he was struggling to provide for clothing and shoes, while his wife had to stay home and take care of the little ones. After the fall of the Soviet Union his community farm fell apart and the money Omburek was making was barely enough to purchase food for everyone. At that time Omburek decided to also start farming, and began growing sugar beets at his house plot. He was selling his harvest to the local sugar factory and using the profits to purchase more livestock. Now Omburek's household has flourished and he owns two milk cows, two heifers and a calf and he also offers his tractor driving skills during the planting season to the other local farmers. His wife is now able to help a lot more with the farm as two of his five children are already in college while the youngest three are all attending school. Omburek himself is not only a good businessman but also a wonderful loving husband and father.

In order to further expand his livestock business and purchase more animals, Omburek has turned to "Bai-Tushum and partners" for a loan of 60,000 som (KGS). In the future Omburek dreams of expanding his farm as well and buying new farming equipment for himself.

Омурбек родился в селе Панфиловское (Панфиловский район, Чуйская обл., Кыргызская Республика). Омурбек вырос в большой семье, у него 3 брата и 3 сестры, родители были простыми рабочими. После окончания школы Омурбек поступил в училище, получив специальность тракториста, помогал семье по хозяйству. В 1985 году Омурбек женился и остался жить со своими родителями, где основным источником дохода семьи являлось разведение скотины и полеводство. В 1989 году родилась первая дочь, а в 1995 году у Омурбека родилась вторая дочь. Проработав в родном колхозе 3 года, он решает заняться своим делом. Стартовые сбережения его семьи составляли 10,000 сом (KGS), на которые решено было начать разведение скота, купив для начала одну корову. Были тяжелые времена, семья к концу 90х годов состояла уже из 6 человек, детей нужно было одеть, обуть, супруга была дома, занималась домашними хлопотами. С развалом Советского Союза колхоза уже не стало, заработанных денег еле хватало на еду. И вот тогда Омурбек решает заняться и полеводством, начав с собственного огорода, где он начал выращивать свеклу. Полученный урожай Омурбек стал сдавать на сахарный завод, а на вырученные деньги - закупать скот. На сегодняшний день, в хозяйстве Омурбека 2 дойные коровы, 2 телочки и 1 бычок, также, в сезон, он предоставляет услуги тракториста местному населению. По хозяйству ему помогает жена, супруги воспитывают пятерых детей – двое из них студенты, трое – школьники. Сам Омурбек не только хороший человек, но и замечательный, любящий отец и муж.
В целях дальнейшего развития своего бизнеса, Омурбек обратился в компанию «Бай – Тушум и Партанеры» за кредитом в сумме 60,000 сом (KGS) на покупку дополнительного скота. Омурбек мечтает в будущем развить свою ферму и купить новую технику.
