Patrick is from Nakuru and he is 30 years old; his spouse, Eunice, is a farmer; and he has four children aged 8, 6, 3 and 1 year old.

He is in the business of selling firewood; his business has been in operation for the past 2 years. To enable him to supply enough of this commodity to his customers he has applied for his second loan of KES 30,000 from Kadet Ltd which he is going to use for hiring more laborers to assist him with gathering and delivery.

His monthly income right now is KES 15,000 and he intends to use profits realized from his extended business for educating his children.

In the future, Patrick hopes to buy a motorcycle or a pickup to make transport of firewood efficient and effective.
