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

A loan helped to access premium seeds and high-quality fertilizer, along with advice and insurance, to optimize her productivity and profits.

Cicilia's story

Cicilia is a 63-year-old maize farmer in Kithimu, Kenya. In addition to farming her core crop, she currently has ten chickens and two goats on her land. Cicilia has been unable to access credit to buy high-quality seeds and fertilizer, which compromises the quality of her harvest. She is excited to now have access to high-quality supplies, along with advice and insurance, thanks to an Apollo Agriculture loan, to increase her yields. Thanks to this package, Cicilia expects higher profits this season, which she hopes to invest into her farm in subsequent seasons.
