Edward's story

Edward is a 49-year-old maize farmer in Segero/Barsombe, Kenya. In addition to farming his core crop, he currently has 20 chickens and a cow on his land. Edward historically struggles to access credit for high-quality seeds and fertilizer, 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 bundled package, Edward expects higher profits this season, which he hopes to invest back into his farm in subsequent seasons.


This loan is special because:

It helps maize farmers in Kenya to increase their income and provide for their families.
