Founded in 2006, One Acre Fund supplies smallholder farmers with the agricultural services they need to make their farms vastly more productive. We provide quality farm supplies on credit, delivered within walking distance of farmers’ homes, and agricultural trainings to improve harvests. We measure our success by our ability to make farmers more prosperous: On average, farmers harvest 50 percent more food after working with One Acre Fund.
We are growing quickly. We currently serve more than 800,000 farm families in Eastern and Southern Africa, with more than 7,500 full-time staff, and we aim to serve 1 million farm families by 2020.
We are seeking a smart, dedicated and analytical M&E or field research professional to be an M&E Associate in Kabwe, Zambia. Overall, the M&E Associate will be responsible for using data to continually improve our operations, and impact on our customers. The M&E department at 1AF operates like an in-house research department and the results are used first and foremost to inform program decision-making and to rigorously understand impact. The M&E Associate will also spend approximately 25% of their time taking the lead on 1+ product innovations projects.
