John'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 0.5 acres of maize, in addition to advice and insurance, optimizing for increased productivity and profits.
John is a 64-year-old maize farmer in South Kanyamkago, Kenya. In addition to farming his core crop, he currently has 5 chickens and 1 cow on his land. John historically struggles to access credit for high-quality inputs, which compromises the quality of his harvest. John is excited to have access to high-quality inputs, advice, and insurance from an Apollo Agriculture loan, to increase his yields. With this product, John expects higher profits this season, which he hopes to invest back into his farm in subsequent seasons.
