Julia's story

Julia is a married woman. She has six children. She operates a farm where she keeps cows, and grows maize and other crops. She has been involved in this business for 13 years. Her business is located in a fertile area and her primary customers are locals. She describes her biggest business challenge to be the low prices of farm products.

She will use the Kes 80,000 loan to buy farm inputs to enable her to increase production. Previous loans were repaid successfully. She will use the anticipated profits to buy more farm inputs.
