Jane'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.

Jane's story

Jane is a 64-year-old maize farmer in Lare, Kenya. In addition to farming her core crop, she currently has 9 chickens on her land. Jane historically struggled to access credit for high-quality inputs, which compromised the quality of her harvest. Jane is excited to have access to high-quality inputs, advice, and insurance from an Apollo Agriculture loan, to increase her yields.

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