Mary'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.

Mary's story

Mary is a 50-year-old maize farmer in Kyeni South, Kenya. In addition to farming her core crop, she currently has ten chickens and four cows on her land. Mary has historically struggled to access loans for high quality inputs, which compromises the quality of her harvest. She is excited to have access to high quality inputs, as well as advice and insurance from an Apollo Agriculture loan, to increase her yields.

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