Alfred'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, to optimize for increased productivity and profits.

Alfred's story

Alfred is a 66-year-old maize farmer in Evurore, Kenya. In addition to farming his core crop, he currently has 10 chickens on his land. Alfred has historically struggled to access credit for high quality seeds and fertilizer, which compromises the quality of his harvest. Alfred 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, Alfred expects higher profits this season, which he hopes to invest back into his farm in subsequent seasons.
