Patrick is 20 years old and married, and he lives in Kamwenge, Uganda.

His main business is produce, but he also owns a phone-charging shop in order to earn additional income.

He has hardships of price fluctuations and seasonal changes that affect dealers in produce, especially when they tend to do hoarding and also they sell raw materials which are bought at a low price. However, his vision is to educate his children to higher levels and to own a wholesale produce store.

Patrick intends to use the requested loan to buy more coffee, beans, and maize to sell.
