One Acre Fund - Malawi

One Acre Fund is a non-profit social enterprise that supplies financing and training to help smallholders grow their way out of hunger and build lasting pathways to prosperity. When farmers improve their harvests, they pull themselves out of poverty. They also start producing surplus food for their neighbors. When farmers prosper, they eradicate poverty and hunger in their communities.

One Acre Fund is growing quickly and we are proud to soon represent Africa’s largest network of smallholder farmers. By 2020, we will serve at least 1 million farm families - with more than 5 million people living in those families.  And the farmers we serve will produce enough surplus food to feed another 5 million of their neighbors.

This is only the tip of the iceberg. When millions of farmers speak with one voice, we can more effectively pursue collaboration together with government and the private sector to broaden our reach.

One Acre Fund began its pilot in Malawi in 2013 and launched full operations in 2016. We have grown from a small team of about five staffers serving seventy-one farm families to a team of around 300 staffers serving just over 15,000 farm families directly with input loans, and an additional 50,000 with our training-only service. While we have registered tremendous growth over the years, we are not done growing! Our family of leaders is now working towards serving around 20,000 farm families in 2020 and we are looking for innovative and dedicated development practitioners, both upcoming and established to join our team!
