Patrick is 32 years old and single. He is a dedicated farmer in Eastern Kenya near Nkubu town. He has been farming for the last 13 years and has two employees. He sells his maize, milk, and beans to the local market. He also earns some income from a quarry business (balast) and a kiosk in the same area.

He requested this loan from Juhudi Kilimo for Kshs.70,000 after he had completed his first loan for Kshs.45,000. He will use this new loan to buy chickens (45,000 Kshs.) to start a poultry project, and a dairy goat (for 25,000 Kshs.). His main challenge is the high competition in the market and the fluctuating prices. In the future, he intends to buy a lorry that will help transportation of his produce and for his quarry business. With the added income he hopes to earn from this loan, he hopes to build a decent home for his parents.

He added that "Juhudi Kilimo is a very effective and friendly financial institution."
