Jonathan'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.

Jonathan's story

Jonathan is a 32-year-old maize farmer in Karuna/Meibeki, Kenya. In addition to farming his core crop, he currently has 40 chickens and 4 cows on his land. Jonathan has historically struggled to access credit for high-quality inputs, which compromises the quality of his harvest. Jonathan is excited to have access to high-quality inputs, advice, and insurance from an Apollo Agriculture loan to increase his yields.

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