He employs four other people in the café. He is also formally employed. He learned about Milango through friends who invited him to the group, and he joined with the aim of accessing credit to improve his business operations. His main challenges are competition and the effect of seasonal changes. Patrick is applying for a loan of 41,900 KES (Kenya shillings) to buy food supplies, including rice, cereals, wheat flour and cooking fat.
