Ndungu'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 planting two acres of maize.

Ndungu's story

Ndungu is a 73-year-old maize farmer from Menengai West, Kenya. In addition to farming his core crop, he currently has seven chickens and one cow on his land. Ndungu historically struggles 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 loan, Ndungu expects higher profits this season, which he hopes to invest back into his farm in subsequent seasons.
