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


A loan helped to access premium seeds and high-quality fertilizer for 0.5 acres of maize, in addition to advice and insurance, optimizing for increased productivity and profits.


Speranda's story

Speranda is a 42-year-old maize farmer in Kithimu, Kenya. In addition to farming her core crop, she currently has seven chickens and one cow on her land.

Speranda historically struggles to access credit for high-quality seeds and fertilizer, which compromises the quality of her harvest.

Speranda 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, Speranda expects higher profits this season, which she hopes to invest back into her farm in subsequent seasons.
