The employees of OJSC “GF” and representatives of ADB made their first visit to LLC “Ai-Zi” located in the city of Shopokov. The company buys most of the grain in Kazakhstan, Russia, the rest – from the local population. The production capacity of the flour mill is 5,000 tons of flour per month.
It should be noted that GF provided guarantee to the enterprise three times to obtain bank loans. Thanks to the loans, additional flour processing lines were acquired, the mill was modernized, additional equipment was equipped with technical equipment, and raw materials were purchased.
Today, the company demonstrates good growth dynamics. For example, over one year, production capacity increased from 60 tons per day to 140 tons of flour per day. Accordingly, flour sales volumes increased.
“AI-Zi” produces flour of the 1st and 2nd grades under the brands “Dastorkon”, “Korona”, “Magnat”, “Belaya Korona”, “Kumtor”, “Narodniy”, “Dyikan” and “Aisultan”, which in the form of finished products are sent to 9 warehouses located in the cities of Bishkek, Kara-Balta, Tokmok, Osh, Kara-Suu, Batken, Kyzyl-Kiya, the regional centers of Aksy and Leilek. 54 people work here. A hostel was built for them, meals were organized, and other social bonuses were provided.
Private enterprise “Vasilieva Yu.A.”
The second addressee is Private Enterprise “Vasilyeva Yu.A.” of the Sokuluk District. The farm is located in the village of Sokuluk, specializing in cattle cultivation, production and sale of milk. The activity began in 2006 with the purchase of 10 horses of the Russian Horse breed in Russia and Belarus. In 2008, the breeding highly milk cows of the breed “Burye Shvitsy” were acquired. The cattle house was built according to European standards. For fattening, its own clover crop is used, and additional feed is also purchased. The farm has a tractor with all the units, “Yeshka” hay harvester and a baler.
The complex is designed for 300 head of cattle. Now 139 breeding cows of the Swiss and Holstein breeds are available, of which 40 are dairy, 52 are due to be calving in the near future.
On average, a client delivers 800-900 liters of milk per day to a local entrepreneur who produces yoghurts and cheeses. Milking is done with special milking machines.
LLC “Drujba Dan”
Then a visit was made to Drujba Dan, located in the village of Sadovoy, Moscow Region. The company is engaged in breeding, fattening and sale of pigs of different breeds (magnus, body, landrace, large white, pintelli, etc.).
Drujba Dan is the largest supplier of pork meat in the Kyrgyz market (about 40% of all supplies). In total, 4 448 pigs are kept at 7 bases. One of them is reserved for 630 sows. A sow can farrow twice a year. In one litter, there are from 10 to 12 piglets. After 7-8 litters, the sow is sent for meat. From the moment of birth, piglets are fed for 6 months, then they are sold for meat.
Pig food is prepared and mixed directly at the base, where each category has its own proportions and ingredients. The main ingredients of feed for pigs are corn, wheat, barley, bran, soybean and sunflower meal, as well as special mixtures of vitamins and minerals. In summer and autumn, vegetables and fruits are added to the diet.
The organization also sells livestock feed and squeeze oil. Drujba Dan has already received guarantees from the GF. Loans were allocated for the purchase of feed, including the purchase of imported combined fortified supplements, calcium phosphate, wheat, corn, soybeans, etc.
All farms visited by the Fund’s employees and ADB representatives are confidently doing business, have good credit histories, and a solid material base.
