Damaris's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
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.
Damaris is a 35-year-old maize farmer in Elburgon, Kenya. In addition to farming her core crop, she currently has 1 cow on her land. Damaris historically struggles to access credit for high quality seeds and fertilizer, which compromises the quality of her harvest. Damaris 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, Damaris expects higher profits this season, which she hopes to invest back into her farm in subsequent seasons.
