Margaret'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, professional advice, and insurance for one acre of maize crop to optimize farm productivity and profit.

Margaret's story

Margaret is a 75-year-old maize farmer from Gaturi South, Kenya. In addition to farming her main crop, she also rears nine chickens and five goats on her land. In the past, Margaret had difficulty accessing credit to high quality farming inputs, which eventually compromised the quality of her harvest. But now, with access to Apollo Agriculture loan, she is excited to get high quality inputs, advice, and insurance to increase her farm yields. Margaret expects higher profits this season, which she hopes to invest back into her farm in subsequent seasons.
