Julius is married with five children who are aged 15, 13, 10, 08 and 04 years old and all attend school. He is a peasant farmer growing mainly maize, beans and "matooke" (green bananas) as a major source of income for the family. Julius is also involved in agricultural trade (buying of agricultural produce from village farmers and selling at the market.) He has been doing this business since 2000 and it is from this business that he has managed to educate his children and look after the entire family.

Julius wants a loan of 2,000,000 (two million shillings) to buy more maize for sell and also put some percentage into maintenance of his banana plantation. The major challenge Julius and other farmers in the village face is the changing weather conditions as well as price fluctuation of agricultural produce on the market. He would like the lenders to provide him with funds so that he can build a store for safe custody of his agricultural produce during the harvest season. He is a hard working and creative man.
