Joseph's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support


A loan helped to buy premium maize seeds and fertilizer for his one-acre farmland, along with advice and insurance from his loan program.


Joseph's story

Joseph is a 51-year-old maize farmer living in Central Kamagambo, Kenya. He has always struggled to access credit for high-quality seeds and fertilizer; without these, the quality of his harvest is compromised.

Joseph is excited to have access to high-quality inputs, plus advice and insurance from an Apollo Agriculture loan. With this bundled package, he expects higher profits this season and plans to invest them in his farm in subsequent seasons.
