A loan helped to add stock of kids' and women's shoes.

Julius's story

Julius is in his mid-50s. He is married and blessed with 6 children, 3 boys and 3 girls. He is a retailer, he owns a shop that sells different types of shoes for kids, women and men. He sells school shoes and office shoes. He has been into this business for 2 years and works from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. His business is doing good and he earns a good profit.

This will be Julius' 9th loan request from Tujijenge Tanzania. With his previous 8 loans, he added stocks of shoes and he earned profit that he used for catering his family needs, paying business rent and tax, and loan repayment. He managed to pay back the loan successfully.

He is applying for this loan to add stock of kids’ shoes, for both girls and boys, and women’s simple flat shoes. His dreams is to own a big wholesale shop for shoes.

Julius will be responsible for paying back the loan successfully.
