Report: The One Acre Fund 2015 Annual Report provides an overview of the organization's progress, forward-looking strategies, and new initiatives. Beginning with an opening letter from the Executive and Managing Directors, the report walks through One Acre's scaling progress and strategy, their impact for 2015, new country expansion opportunities, and stories from the farmers themselves.
The OneAcre Fund seeks to expand access to financial services and training for smallholder farmers in Kenya, Rwanda, and Burundi, ultimately enabling 181,000 additional poor farm households to improve their farming techniques, and increase their profits on every planted acre.
One Acre fund will also encourage microfinance institutions to expand into rural areas, helping pioneer and augment the capacity of a new sector of microfinance. And the partnership strengthens OneAcre's core MIS and M&E systems, enabling continued improvement to its program design and greater cost efficiency in its operations, as well as increasing bandwidth to capture the most accurate and compelling evidence of impact.
