Patrick lives in the Mombasa area of Coast Province, Kenya. He is single and sells horticultural produce, e.g. tomatoes, onions, and vegetables. He has been operating this business for five years.
Patrick learnt about Milango through a friend with an aim of accessing credit to better his business operations. The main challenge he faces is price fluctuations.
Patrick is applying for a loan of 52,300 Kenyan shillings to buy more fruits and vegetables. His extra income from the loan will be added to the savings to expand the business and improve his livelihood.
His future plan in five years time is to move to other, bigger income-generating activities.
