Patrick's story

Patrick is involved in farming, mainly cocoa growing, and running a restaurant in town cooking and supplying food to cocoa company employees. This helps him to generate extra income for his children and dependents under his care. He is faced with the challenges of low capital and defaulters that hinder the progress of his business. However, he has a vision of increasing his family income. He hopes to complete building his house in the future and he used his first loan to buy building materials like cement, sand and bricks to construct his house. He is requesting for a school fees loan to pay fees for his children in secondary school.
