About us

One Acre Fund supplies smallholder farmers with the tools and financing they need to grow their way out of hunger and poverty. Instead of giving handouts, the social enterprise invests in farmers to generate a permanent gain in farm income. One Acre Fund measures success in its ability to make more farmers more prosperous.

Program Model
Through a complete service bundle of asset-based financing that addresses the full value chain, One Acre Fund provides farmers with improved seeds and fertilizer, financing for farm inputs, agricultural training, and market facilitation—and delivers these services within walking distance of the 180,000 farmers it serves.

Impact
On average, farmers realize at least a 100% return on their investment and significantly increase their farm income on every planted acre. In 2013, 99% of farmers working with One Acre Fund repaid their loans in full and on time
