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

A loan helped to access premium seeds and high-quality fertilizer for one acre of maize, in addition to advice and insurance, to optimize productivity and profits.

Patrick's story

Patrick is a 48-year-old maize farmer in Mbeu, Kenya. He historically has struggled to access credit for high-quality seeds and fertilizer, which compromises the quality of his harvest. Patrick 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, Patrick expects higher profits this season, which he hopes to reinvest into his farm in subsequent seasons.
