Esther'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 1.5 acres of maize, in addition to advice and insurance, optimizing productivity and profits.

Esther's story

Esther is a 63-year-old maize farmer in Karuna/Meibeki, Kenya. In addition to farming her core crop, she currently has 10 chickens and 3 cows on her land. Historically, Esther has struggled to access credit for high quality inputs, which compromises the quality of her harvest. Esther is excited to have access to high quality inputs, advice and insurance from an Apollo Agriculture loan, to increase her yield.

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