Maureen'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.

Maureen's story

Maureen is a 53-year-old maize farmer in West Sakwa, Kenya. In addition to farming her core crop, she currently has 3 chickens on her land. Maureen historically struggles to access credit for high quality inputs, which compromises the quality of her harvest. Maureen is excited to have access to high quality inputs, advice and insurance from an Apollo Agriculture loan, to increase her yields. With this product, Maureen expects higher profits this season, which she hopes to invest back into her farm in subsequent seasons.
