Julius is a 23-year-old man. He is married with two children and lives in Kamwenge, Uganda. After completing school and failing to get a formal job, he decided to venture into a produce business and the start is promising.

Julius is a farmer and most of his produce stock is directly from his land, but he also buys from other farmers to meet the high demand. Price fluctuation and limited funds affect his business, while his dream is to own a food store that can sustainably supply his customers all year round.

Julius intends to use the loan to buy maize to sell.
