A loan helped to purchase maize for his brewing business.
Patrick is an enterprising man who ventured into bushera local drink brewing, which is made from maize, millet and water. Patrick also grows and buys maize and bean produce to supplement on his income. He has been in the bushera business over seven years and he hopes to expand it. The high demand of bushera in his area inspired him to start the business. Patrick is married with seven children; four are schooling in Kyenjojo, Uganda. He says his business faces a challenge of low sales in the rainy seasons due to the cold. Patrick is therefore requesting a loan to purchase maize for his brewing business.
