One Acre Fund

One Acre Fund is a non-profit social enterprise that supplies financing and training to help smallholders grow their way out of hunger. Founded in Kenya in 2006, the organisation has evolved to now serve over 1 million smallholder farmers across six countries in Eastern and Southern Africa. One Acre Fund has doubled its reach in Rwanda since we began supporting it in 2016. Today, its ambitious strategy aims to reach roughly 1.5 million farmers, and a third of the country’s smallholder families, by 2022.

CHALLENGE

Over 50 million smallholder farmers in Sub-Saharan Africa are locked in cycles of hunger and unable to grow enough food for their families. Poor agronomic practices, lack of access to quality seeds and fertilizers, insufficient storage and links to market opportunities are the main barriers.

ACTION

One Acre Fund provides smallholder farmers living in remote rural areas of East Africa with access to improved seed, fertiliser and agricultural training, as well as financing and market facilitation. This enables them to improve their crop yields and quality of life within one growing season.

IMPACT

In Rwanda One Acre Fund is now serving 390,000 farmers (50% women) with services that enable them to increase their income by an average of $120 per year (based on 2016 to 2019). This ensures better living conditions for over 2 million people, including 1 million children.
