Raymond'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 3 acres of maize, in addition to advice and insurance, optimizing for increased productivity and profits.

Raymond's story

Raymond is a 60-year-old maize farmer in Karuna/Meibeki, Kenya. In addition to farming his core crop, he currently has 50 chickens and 4 cows on his land.

Raymond historically struggles to access credit for high quality inputs, which compromises the quality of his harvest. Raymond is excited to have access to high quality inputs, advice and insurance from an Apollo Agriculture loan, to increase his yields.

With this product, Raymond expects higher profits this season, which he hopes to invest back into his farm in subsequent seasons.
