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


A loan helped to access premium seeds and high quality fertilizer for 0.5 acres of maize and to access advice and insurance to optimize productivity and increase profits.


Hesborn's story

Hesborn is a 49-year-old maize farmer in Kojwach, Kenya. He historically struggles to access credit for high quality seeds and fertilizer, which compromises the quality of his harvest. Hesborn is excited to have access to high quality inputs and advice and insurance from an Apollo Agriculture loan, which he hopes will increase his yields.

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