Prince Aly Muhammad visits a local chicken farm owned by Mr Kalyikul Ysyraliev. As a graduate of UCA’s Entrepreneurship Programme, Mr Ysraliev built his first greenhouse in 2013 with the support of a loan from the Kyrgyz Investment and Credit Bank and UCA, and has been supplying chickens, eggs, as well as vegetables and roses to the local community for the past five years.

Earlier this month, Prince Aly Muhammad completed a five-day, private visit to the Kyrgyz Republic, during which he visited the Naryn campus of the University of Central Asia. Prince Aly Muhammad spent time with students in Naryn to understand more about their backgrounds and aspirations.
