Francis's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support
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.
Francis is a 45-year-old maize farmer in Kithimu, Kenya. In addition to farming his core crop, he currently has 6 chickens and 4 goats on his land. Francis historically struggles to access credit for high quality seeds and fertilizer, which compromises the quality of his harvest. Francis 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, Francis expects higher profits this season, which he hopes to invest back into his farm in subsequent seasons.
