Francis's story

Francis is a 48-year-old maize farmer in Tembelio, Kenya. In addition to farming his core crop, he currently has 40 chickens and 2 cows on his land. Francis has historically struggled to access credit for high-quality inputs, which compromises the quality of his harvest.

With this product, Francis expects higher profits this season, which he hopes to invest back into his farm in subsequent seasons.
