Patrick is a married man with one child who attends school. He owns a house that has electricity but not piped water. His greatest monthly expenses are food, rent, and school fees.
He has operated a food stall for the past eleven years, selling to his neighbours and passersby. Patrick faces a major challenge of competition from other food stall operators in his area of operation. He hopes to establish a restaurant in the future.
With the Kshs 20,000 he wants to purchase sacks of Irish potatoes, beans, rice, baking flour and cooking oil. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to improve his business.
