It depend on the country where you from, when i applied first time for my mother they approved her same day, she did not have a job or any kind on income also no ties to the country, but they approved with no issues.

It doesn't matter who's paying for the trip and invitation letters mean almost nothing.

The simple matter is that there's probably nothing either of you did wrong with the application.

It's very difficult for people to get tourist visas if they have immediate family members living in the US, they do get approved of course but the applicant has a more difficult time getting it usually.

The law says that the CO must presume that your mother is planning to enter the US to live. Unfortunately there's not a document or bit of paper anywhere that can guarantee that they wont immigrate on the B2 so it's up to the personal opinion of the CO interviewing.

As disheartening as the denial is, neither you nor your mother should blame yourselves thinking you did something wrong.

Is she officially married? because it can be that she has no one in kyrgyzstan and they assume she will jsut stay in the US because her daughter (you) is there. Also, she needs to have a wellpaid job that she worked for about 3 years at least ( this is what counsil told me when i tried to get my visitor visa, she said if you were married and/or had a job for at least 2-3 years, i would give you visa, but there is no guarantee you ll ome back casue there is nothing in your country that holds you, this is pretty much what she said to me).
