Charge-breeding processes in Electron Cyclotron Resonance Ion Sources are numerically simulated by using the target helium plasma parameters obtained with NAM-ECRIS code. Breeding efficiency is obtained as a function of 1$^{+}$ ion injection energy for some alkali ion beams.Time dependencies of extracted ions are calculated; typical times for reaching saturation in currents are in the range of few tens of milliseconds. Role of charge-exchange processes in breeding of ions is discussed. Recycling of ions on the source walls is shown to be important.
