About the organization

Founded in 2006, One Acre Fund supplies smallholder farmers with the agricultural services they need to make their farms vastly 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 currently 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.

Our CMS currently handles the enrollment of close to a million smallholder farm families across multiple countries, tracks client orders, manages the delivery of seed, fertilizer, and solar lights to within walking distance of every client, processes millions of payment transactions, and creates a wide variety of business intelligence reports.
