Caroline'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 one acre of maize, in addition to advice and insurance, to optimize productivity and profits.

Caroline's story

Caroline is a 37-year-old maize farmer in Tendeno/Sorget, Kenya. In addition to farming her core crop, she currently has twenty chickens and two cows on her land.

Caroline has historically struggled to receive credit for premium inputs, which has compromised the quality of her harvest. She is excited to gain access to high-quality inputs, advice and insurance through an Apollo Agriculture loan to increase her yields.

With this loan, Caroline expects higher profits this season, which she hopes to invest back into her farm in subsequent seasons.
