About the organization
About One Acre Fund
Founded in 2006, One Acre Fund supplies smallholder farmers with the agricultural services they need to make their farms more productive. We provide quality farm supplies on credit, delivered within walking distance of farmers homes, and agricultural trainings to improve harvests. We measure our success by our ability to make farmers more prosperous: On average, farmers harvest 50 percent more food after working with One Acre Fund.
We are growing quickly. We serve more than 800,000 farm families in Eastern and Southern Africa, with more than 7,500 full-time staff, and we aim to serve 1 million farm families by 2020.
At One Acre Fund we believe that linking our farmers to markets is one of the most important actions we can take to unlock profitability for our clients, promote the use of good agricultural practices and create employment within the value chain in general.
Your responsibilities will include:
• Developing market access interventions or models for different agricultural products (Crop and Livestock)
o Conduct background studies, operational and financial estimates, and create an impact model for the proposed intervention
• Design trials to test the new models, analyze trial data, and report findings through memos and presentations.
• Integrate new models and programs into our other channels (Core, Retail, Partnerships)
o Collaborate across all our departments to integrate the most promising market access services and trainings into our field program.
• External partner relationships
o Initiate and manage collaborative projects with external partners, which includes drafting MoUs, periodic reporting and ensuring OAF policies are followed in all communication and results sharing, and most importantly delivering results
