Jackline'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, for increased productivity and profits.

Jackline's story

Jackline is a 44-year-old maize farmer in Kagaari South, Kenya. In addition to farming her core crop, she currently has 3 chickens and 3 goats on her land. Jackline has historically struggled to access credit for high-quality seeds and fertilizer, which compromises the quality of her harvest. Jackline 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, Jackline expects higher profits this season, which she hopes to invest back into her farm in subsequent seasons.
