Kanario'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 & insurance, optimizing for increased productivity & profits.


Kanario's story

Kanario is a 44-year-old maize farmer in Kangeta, Kenya. In addition to farming her core crop, she currently has five chickens and one cow on her land. Kanario historically struggles to access credit for high quality inputs, which compromises the quality of her harvest. Kanario is excited to have access to high quality inputs, advice and insurance from an Apollo Agriculture loan, to increase her yields.

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