One Acre Fund: Putting 1 Million Farmers First by 2020

Commitment by

One Acre Fund

In 2015, One Acre Fund committed to scale its agricultural development model to reach 1,000,000 smallholder farmers in Sub-Saharan Africa by 2020. Smallholder farmers comprise the majority of the world’s poor; One Acre Fund’s model increases profits on the farm and non-farm activities it supports by 50% and gives them the resources to continue improving their livelihoods by providing access to seed and fertilizer, finance, training, and post-harvest support. As part of this commitment, One Acre Fund will expand from four to ten countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, and will reach approximately 700,000 new farmers. It will also increase its impact beyond the proven results of its core mode, for these new farmers and for the nearly 300,000 farmers it already supports, by providing new products and services that promote soil health, clean energy, and nutrition.
