Every season, smallholder farmers lose a significant portion of their crops as a result of pests and diseases. Here, our Rwanda Innovation Director Emmanuel, inspects a farmer's maize field in Kagabiro, Rwanda, checking for early warning signs.

We’re calling for a distribution revolution. Life-changing agricultural technologies already exist. Now, it's about effectively delivering these technologies to smallholder farmers.

Josias Nduwimana has a remarkable story. In 2009, he was living in a refugee camp in Tanzania while learning how to farm to take better care of his family of five. Now, Josais is a proud manager in our Burundi innovations team. His story --> http://bit.ly/1Fr0kfP

One Acre Fund serves smallholder farmers. In everything we do, we place the farmer first.
Introduction

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, 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 180,000 rural farmers we serve.

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