Patrick's story

Patrick is a 38-year-old man with three children living in Fort Portal, Uganda.

With a vision of constructing a residential house, he made a decision to set up a bar alongside running a butcher shop to boost his income. Price fluctuation and weather changes are his major challenges. Patrick intends to use the loan to buy land.
