At One Acre Fund, we specialize in last-mile delivery, distributing agricultural supplies within walking distance of some of Sub-Saharan Africa’s hardest-to-reach places. And in 2022, we set up our first-ever Home Delivery Unit in Kenya.
Last mile delivery
After successfully piloting farmer services in Bihar, India, we’re now partnering with Essmart, a last-mile distribution company, to increase access to agricultural products for rural farmers in Northern India.
