Patrick lives in the Mariakani area of Coast Province, Kenya. He is married and has three children. He owns a retail shop, a business which he has been running for six years. In this business, he sells retail stock such as rice, sugar, flour, cooking oil, etc.
He learned about Milango through friends who invited him to the group and he joined with the aim of accessing credit to improve his business operations. His main challenge is the high cost of products.
Patrick is applying for a loan of 21,100 Kenya shillings to buy retail stock such as rice, sugar, flour, cooking oil, etc. The extra income from the loan will be added to his savings to improve the living standard of his family.
