Mariakani, Kenya / Tailoring

A loan of $500 helped to buy another sewing machine.


Patrick's story

Patrick lives in Mariakani, Kenya. He is married and blessed with four children, all of whom attend school. He is a tailor by training and that is his everyday business. He has been doing this for the last four years. He came to know of Milango through his friends, who invited him to join so that he could access credit.

Patrick now seeks a loan of 41,850 Kenya shillings to buy another sewing machine. This will enable him to employ someone to help him handle his ever-growing number of customers. The major challenge that he faces is that his clients don’t pay on time. He works hard every day to make enough money so that he can give his children better education. He hopes to have a wholesale shop, supplying and making clothes in his hometown.
