In order to maintain One Acre Fund's ambitious growth trajectory, the New Country Expansion team has identified India as a critical country to expand to, and we have begun our pilot program in rural Bihar, India.

ABOUT ONE ACRE FUND

Founded in 2006, One Acre Fund  supplies 1 million smallholder farmers with the agricultural services they need to make their farms vastly more productive. In India, we have been serving farmers for 2 years by providing quality farm inputs on credit, delivered within walking distance of farmers’ homes, coupled with agricultural training to maximise harvests. We make farmers more prosperous and on average, our farmers harvest 50 percent more food after working with One Acre Fund. 

One Acre Fund sees  tremendous growth potential in India in the agriculture sector and agri-input and support services and there is a need to adapt to the local context to take our service to the next level of impact.
