Royal Self-Help Group's story

Julius L. is a 43 year old Kenyan father of four children. He also lives with the two orphaned children of his late sister, who perished two years ago.

Julius started his business three years ago after accumulating savings from his previous job. He currently operates a small posho mill (maize grinder) in his neighborhood, and stocks maize that he sells to his customers. He occasionally also sells millet and sorghum to better enable him to support his family. With the little profit that he gets from the business, Julius still struggles to feed, clothe, and educate his children and to pay the rent for his house. But with the help of his loan, he will be able to purchase more bags of maize to sell to his customers and boost his sales.

Disclaimer: Due to recent events in Kenya, the security situation in many communities remains unsettled, affecting many local businesses. Lenders to this entrepreneur should be aware that this loan may represent a higher default risk, and should be willing to accept this additional risk in making their loan.
