How the Biashara Club transformed Patrick Malika’s network

In Kenya, it is difficult for potential landowners to purchase small plots of land. As a young entrepreneur interested in real estate, Patrick Malika recognized the gap in the market and started his own company that buys larger plots of lands and then divides that land into smaller plots for resell.

To buy larger parcels of land, he relies heavily on financing from KCB Bank. However as his business expanded, Patrick realized that he needed more than just financing to sustain growth. He needed a strong network. As a result, he joined KCB’s Biashara to club connect with other entrepreneurs. Last January, ConsumerCentriX spoke to Patrick to understand why networking was so important to his business’s success. .
