Total loan: $150


West Gem, Homa Bay, Homa Bay County, Kenya / Agriculture

Francis'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 one acre of maize, in addition to advice and insurance, optimizing for increased productivity and profits.

Francis's story

Francis is a 56-year-old maize farmer in West Gem, Kenya. In addition to farming his core crop, he currently has 7 chickens and 15 cows on his land.

Francis historically struggles to access credit for high quality seeds and fertilizer, which compromises the quality of his harvest. Francis 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, Francis expects higher profits this season, which he hopes to invest back into his farm in subsequent seasons.
