Samwel'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 one acre of maize, in addition to advice and insurance, optimizing for increased productivity and profits.

Samwel's story

Samwel is a 51-year-old maize farmer in Kiirua/Naari, Kenya. In addition to farming his core crop, he currently has six chickens on his land. Samwel historically struggles to access credit for high quality inputs, which compromises the quality of his harvest. He is excited to have access to high quality inputs, advice and insurance from an Apollo Agriculture loan to increase his yields.

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