Joseph'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, optimizing for increased productivity and profits.


Joseph's story

Joseph is a 54-year-old maize farmer in Subukia, Kenya. In addition to farming his core crop, he currently has 30 chickens and 3 cows on his land. Joseph historically struggles to access credit for high quality inputs, which compromises the quality of his harvest. Joseph is excited to have access to high quality inputs, advice and insurance from an Apollo Agriculture loan, to increase his yields.

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