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 400,000 rural farmers
We measure success in our ability to make farmers more prosperous and we always put Farmers First. www.oneacrefund.org
