This is an opportunity for 100,000 students and young people under the age of 29 to study for entrepreneurship, receive government grants, or receive effective loans. So far, the project will start working in NurSultan, Almaty and Shymkent.

“No one can predict who will succeed in 57 years. After school is over, many girls are unable to find a job, and most of them can not choose the type of service. Atameken is concerned about this issue, “said Eldar Zhumagaziyev, Deputy Chairman of the Board of NCE RK” Atameken “.

He said that he should know who is a physicist, chemist, who is close to business.

“My younger brother came to power with the collapse of the Soviet government. This situation has not been easy for all of us. At that time, I studied in Moscow, and we did not know if we were guiding it right. But then I understood that I should take responsibility for my family and act as soon as possible, “he said. Shayakhmetova.

As he pointed out, he was a vice president and deputy chairman of the Board of Directors.

“In 2009, Kazakhstan faced a crisis. The price dropped sharply: real estate, wheat, oil prices dropped. There was a lot of doubt. Can a woman manage a bank in such a global crisis? Why not? If I am currently a man in the presidency, I will still be the first deputy to resolve issues. Being a wife is not an obstacle. Yes, my youngest son was only 1 year old, but I was morally ready to work with his back. So, if I did not, I started working on condition that I would be released “, said Umut Shayakhmetova.

On the Atameken FEST Square, Umut Shayakhmetova presented a new youth program.
