Festus's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to access premium seeds and high quality fertilizer for 1 acre of maize, in addition to advice and insurance, optimizing for increased productivity and profits.

Festus's story

Festus is a 57-year-old maize farmer in Evurore, Kenya. In addition to farming his core crop, he currently has 5 chickens and 6 goats on his land. Festus historically struggles to access credit for high quality seeds and fertilizer, which compromises the quality of his harvest. Festus is excited to have access to high quality inputs, advice and insurance from an Apollo Agriculture loan, to increase his yields.

With this bundled package, Festus expects higher profits this season, which he hopes to invest back into his farm in subsequent seasons.
