We provide farmers with a "market bundle" that includes education, finance, seed and fertilizer, and market access. Our program is proven impactful – every year, we weigh thousands of harvests and measure more than 100% average gain in farm income per acre.

This requires frequent written and verbal communication with our suppliers as well as the various teams within One Acre Fund that we are procuring inputs for. 

The Inputs team serves One Acre Fund operations in Kenya, Rwanda, Burundi, Tanzania, Ethiopia, and Ghana, so the scope of work is truly international and involves understanding the different needs and available supply in all of these countries.
