A loan helped to purchase additional stock for the trade store.

Julie's story

Julie is 35 years of age and a mother of two kids. She's involved in a trade store business. She has been in the business for 12 months. Within these months, she has been through so many challenges where she resides in the local resettlement area, but that does not stop her from pursuing her informal sales business in the trade store.

Her sales support the locals' needs and wants. Due to the increased customer demand, she runs out of store goods. Thus, she has requested funds to purchase additional goods for the store.
