Ismail is a married man with four children: three boys and one girl, all of whom are attending school.
Ismail has a shop where he sells fruits, vegetables, frozen meat and chicken. His shop is located in a very good location where it is the only shop in that area that sells such products. Isamil appears in the photo at his shop where he is slicing some goat meat.
Isamil requested 3,000 USD from FATEN to pay some debts he owes to the merchants who provide him with the goods for his shop. In addition to that, he will use some of the loan to pay for new goods.
