Patrick is an enterprising man living in Hoima, Uganda. He sells soft drinks and produce. He started the business after realizing that farming alone could hardly meet his family's daily expenses due to its seasonal nature. Price fluctuation and unpredictable weather changes pose challenges to his business growth, while his dream is to set up a food store that can sustainably supply his customers all year round.

Patrick is requesting for a loan to buy agricultural produce and soda to sell.
