Ismat is a mother of six children: four daughters and two sons. Ismat and her husband are employees with a decent salary. Therefore, they have decided to start a business that would add to their income and secure a better life and education for their six children. Ismat and her husband started a small animal farm that is growing slowly. To enlarge the farm, they took out a loan from FATEN to purchase more goats to raise to produce milk and make cheese to sell. Ismat's husband appears in the picture here, as she is a conservative woman.
