Julia's story

Julia is a married woman. She has five children. She describes herself as honest. Julia operates a farm where she sells milk and vegetables, and she has been involved in this business for 10 years. Her business is located in a good area and her primary customers are locals from Maua, Kenya. She describes her biggest business challenge as inadequate working capital.

Julia will use this KES 50,000 loan to buy more farming inputs to boost production. She hopes that in the future, she will be able to expand her business. This is her fifth loan with SMEP Microfinance Bank, and she repaid her previous loans successfully. She will use the anticipated profits to pay school fees.
