Job's story

Job is a 76-year-old maize farmer in Ravine, Kenya. In addition to farming his core crop, he currently has 10 chickens and two cows on his land. Job has historically struggled to access credit for high quality inputs, which has compromised the quality of his harvest.

Job is excited to have access to high-quality inputs, advice, and insurance from an Apollo Agriculture loan to increase his yields. With this loan, he 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.
