A loan of $800 helped to buy maize flour to sell.


Julius's story

Julius is a thirty-five years-old married man with six children living in Fort Portal, Uganda. After realising the lucrative nature of the produce business, he decided to venture into maize sales and he has been able to reap a lot of profits. Like all good fathers, Juluis dreams of seeing his children graduating with degrees and having good paying jobs.

He has the hardship of price fluctuation and high transportation costs from the farmers to the market due to a poor road network. His ambition is to diversify into home use products since the produce business has peak and off seasons. Julius is requesting for a loan to buy maize to sell.
