Edith'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.

Edith's story

Edith is a 47-year-old maize farmer in Kyeni South, Kenya. In addition to farming her core crop, she currently has 12 chickens and 2 goats on her land. Edith historically struggles to access credit for high quality seeds and fertilizer, which compromises the quality of her harvest. Edith is excited to have access to high quality inputs, advice and insurance from an Apollo Agriculture loan, to increase her yields.

With this bundled package, Edith expects higher profits this season, which she hopes to invest back into her farm in subsequent seasons.
