What farmers need
In Sub-Saharan Africa, remote communities and infrastructure challenges bring huge challenges. It takes innovative logistics solutions to get people the things they need.
What we do
One Acre Fund specializes in the last mile of delivery that is so crucial to ensuring the hardest to reach people still get access to life’s necessities. We distribute seeds and supplies within walking distance of farmers' homes, delivering at just the right time so that farmers are able to get their crops in the ground at the right moment.
How do we accomplish this? We deliver through three channels: through retail shops, through our field officers, and most recently through trials of online apps. We use geotagging software to pinpoint and monitor activity at each delivery site to ensure that goods arrive and that farmers get what they ordered. Where there are no good roads, we deliver using alternative modes of transport, like tractors and motorcycles.

Our delivery experts, John Genga and Leah Atieno, share One Acre Fund’s experience delivering life-changing products to more than a million farmers and share the lessons we have learnt along the way.
If we can innovate cost-effective, scalable ways to distribute agriculture technologies to the millions of smallholder farmers who demand them, we will unlock a huge market opportunity—and our best chance to feed the world.
