"Julius is 45 years old and lives in the town of Kisaasi in the Kampala east region of Uganda. He is married and has 3 children who are all currently in school. For the past 6 years Julius has been working hard to manage his retail shop, which sells soda and beer.
To help expand his business Julius has requested a loan of 2,500,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more house hold commodities and will help Julius to generate greater profits and expansion of his business. Julius hopes that in the future he will be able to earn high profits.
