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

Julius's story

Julius is a 60-year-old maize farmer in West Nalondo, Kenya. In addition to farming his core crop, he currently has one cow on his land. Julius has historically struggled to access credit for high-quality inputs, which compromises the quality of his harvest. Julius is excited to have access to high-quality inputs, advice, and insurance from an Apollo Agriculture loan, to increase his yields.

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