She was awarded the honorary title of "Mother Heroine" and also recognized as an "Honored Worker" of her village. She has a secondary education. After finishing school, she worked on a kolkhoz (collective farm) and then got married to a man named Juman who gave her 14 children. Juman became ill and died in 1999. Before his illness he worked as a shepherd in the village. Out of the couple's 14 children, 12 are now married and living independently, while the two youngest sons still live with their mother.

Karayakhan is now enjoying retirement, but she is still involved in agriculture and helping her children. All her adult life, Karayakhan has been raising cattle and growing crops. She started in this field 40 years ago with the purchase of livestock for 1,000 som (KGS). Thanks to her very hard work, she now owns one dairy cow, one calf and one horse and, together with her children, she cultivates 4.48 hectares of land and grows beans annually. She makes a monthly income of 10,000 som (KGS). In order to further develop her farming business, Karayakhan has turned to the microfinance bank "Bai Tushum & Partners" to buy some cows and increase her cattle headcount. She plans to reinvest the earnings from her loan into further increasing her number of farm animals. She is also planning to save enough money to pay for her son's wedding ceremony.
