Nkatha'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 1 acre of maize, in addition to advice & insurance, for optimizing increased productivity & profits.

Nkatha's story

Nkatha is a 36-year-old maize farmer in Akithii, Kenya. In addition to farming her core crop, she currently has 10 chickens, 10 goats and 2 cows on her land.

Nkatha has historically struggled to access credit for high quality inputs, which compromises the quality of her harvest. Nkatha is excited to have access to high quality inputs, as well as advice and insurance from an Apollo Agriculture loan, to help increase her yields.

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