Bibikhatsha Darmenkulova, Kazakhstan
It didn’t take Bibikhatsha Darmenkulova long to prove to her family the new business she started in 2011 was a good idea. Then she discovered there was an even fuller life waiting for her by helping others achieve success too.
As a young wife, Bibikhatsha worked and lived with her husband’s family. Like many in her small village, young wives fulfilled many responsibilities at home. For Bibikhatsha, that meant taking care of the children, looking after the farm animals and preparing meals for all the members of her multi-generational household.
