How We Grow

We designed One Acre Fund to grow.

Our field staff are organized into “operating units” of 75 staff. We are constantly adding new operating units, while also growing existing ones.

Most of our staff are regular farmers. Isaac (far right) started as a farmer, then joined our staff, and is now the field director of one of our largest operating units. Through our leadership development program, we are helping our staff to build meaningful and fulfilling careers. To read more staff stories, visit our blog.

Our field staff are supported by professional headquarters in each country, providing finance, accounting, HR, logistics, marketing, and administration services. Internally, we look a lot like a regular private-sector company.

We have also built the capacity to launch one new country operation per year for the foreseeable future, and currently have “exploratory” pilot operations running in several new countries.
