She has been doing animal husbandry and field crop cultivation since 1991 as a main source of income for her family. After her husband's death the entire business has been left to herself and thanks to her son and daughter Kishimkan has been keeping all in order. The business which was started with an amount of 1,000 KGS in 1992 right now has six cows, twenty heads of sheep, 25 goats and three horses which brings around 10,000-12,000 som a month thanks to her hard work and perseverance. With the goal to further grow her business Kishimkan has come to Bai Tushum and Partners for a loan in the amount of 30,000 KGS to buy cattle.
