Alois's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to access high quality farm inputs for two acres of maize, in addition to advice and insurance, optimizing for increased productivity and profits.

Alois's story

Alois is a 63-year-old maize farmer in Nyaki East, Kenya. In addition to farming his core crop, he currently has one goat and one cow on his land. He historically struggles to access credit for high quality inputs, which compromises the quality of his harvest.

Alois is excited to have access to high quality inputs, advice, and insurance from an Apollo Agriculture loan, to increase his yields. With this product he expects higher profits this season, which he hopes to invest back into his farm in subsequent seasons.
