Patrick is a married man with two children, all of whom attend school. He lives in a rental house that has electricity and piped water.
He has operated a retail shop business for the past 10 years, selling consumable goods like wheat flour, maize flour, and sugar. He faces a major challenge of creditors staying long enough to repay goods taken on credit.
With the loan he is requesting, Patrick wants to purchase stocks of sugar, rice, maize flour and wheat flour. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his business.
