Being pushed by the need to support his mother, Julius started banana-farming on a small scale on the family's land that his grandmother allowed him to use. This banana plantation was used as a source of food for the family and it helped them meet all their needs. This business has grown, giving him an opportunity to support his family and dependents.
Julius has also managed to construct a house for his family. He is requesting a loan of UGX 2,500,000 to complete his house.
