Robert'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.

Robert's story

Robert is a 42-year-old maize farmer in Chepchoina, Kenya. In addition to farming his core crop, he currently has 6 goats on his land. Robert historically struggles to access credit for high quality inputs, which compromises the quality of his harvest. Robert is excited to have access to high quality inputs, advice and insurance from an Apollo Agriculture loan, to increase his yields.

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