Joshua'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 2 acres of maize, in addition to advice and insurance, optimizing for increased productivity and profits.

Joshua's story

Joshua is a 51-year-old maize farmer in Musikoma, Kenya. In addition to farming his core crop, he currently has 30 chickens and 3 cows on his land. Joshua has struggled to access credit for high-quality inputs, which compromises the quality of his harvest. He is excited to have access to high-quality inputs, advice and insurance from an Apollo Agriculture loan to increase his yields.

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