A loan of $275 helps to access premium seeds and high-quality fertilizer for planting two acres of maize.


Mercy's story

Mercy is a 27-year-old maize farmer from Karuna/Meibeki, Kenya. In addition to farming her core crop, she currently has 20 chickens and four cows on her land. Mercy historically struggles to access credit for high-quality inputs, which compromises the quality of her harvest. She is excited to have access to high-quality inputs, advice, and insurance from an Apollo Agriculture loan to increase her yields.

With this loan, Mercy 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.
