Samwel's story

Samwel is a 66-year-old maize farmer in Central, Kenya. In addition to farming his core crop, he currently has 30 chickens and 1 goat on his land.

Samwel 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.
