Isaac Sifuna and members of his group plant maize in Bunambobi, Kenya. Before joining One Acre Fund, they harvested 3 to 5 bags of maize each season. After joining us two years ago, they've harvested 13 and 14 bags each year. This year, they have high hopes of harvesting 15 bags!

Story
Tagline
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
