A loan of $300 helps to access premium seeds and high-quality fertilizer for 2 acres of maize, in addition to advice and insurance, to optimize productivity and profits.


Saphina's story

Saphina is a 49-year-old maize farmer in Kiplombe, Kenya. In addition to farming her core crop, she currently has 3 chickens and 1 cow on her land. Saphina historically has struggled to access credit for high-quality inputs, which compromises the quality of her harvest. Saphina is excited to have access to high-quality inputs, advice, and insurance from an Apollo Agriculture loan to increase her yields.

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


This loan is special because:

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