About One Acre Fund

One Acre Fund supplies smallholder farmers with the financing and training they need to grow their way out of hunger and poverty.

  • Instead of giving handouts, we invest in farmers to generate a permanent gain in farm income. We supply a complete service bundle of seeds and fertilizer, financing, training, and market facilitation—
  • and we deliver these services within walking distance of the over 800,000 rural farmers we serve. We measure success in our ability to make farmers more prosperous and we always put Farmers First.
