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. Our 8,000+ team is drawn from diverse backgrounds and professions.

  • With operations across six core countries in Africa, we make farmers more prosperous by providing quality farm supplies on credit, delivered within walking distance of farmers’ homes, and agricultural training to improve harvests. On average, the farmers we serve harvest 50 percent more food after working with One Acre Fund.

    About the Role

  • One Acre Fund is piloting a new initiative called the Smallholder Resilience Fund (SRF). The idea is to combine:

  • Market Access: Aggregating produce from smallholder farmers, focusing on high value climate friendly crops

  • Small and Medium Enterprise investments: Investing with debt, equity, and mezzanine and providing technical assistance to companies along the value chain

  • Venture Studio: Where businesses do not exist, launching new ones.

  • We hypothesize that by addressing multiple value chain challenges simultaneously (e.g. both inputs and end-markets), we can create a virtuous cycle of increasing profits for farmers and businesses

  • For SRF, we are looking for an Investment Associate/Manager to evaluate potential investments from a financial perspective. To ensure each investment succeeds, you will provide support to the ventures, such as coaching, financial analysis, and process improvement. You will also monitor investment performance and track the pipeline. Over time, you will take on more leadership
    of the investment process.

  • The Investment Associate/ will report to the SRF Director and the Chief Investment Officer.


  • Support the Chief Investment Officer throughout the investment cycle (origination, investment proposal writing, due diligence, performance monitoring, portfolio management, and exits).

  • Post-investment, assess portfolio company needs and provide support

  • Lead investment monitoring to assure quality in the investment portfolio and on-time repayment of loan financial obligations.

  • Build and maintain financial projections and valuation models.

  • Support fund reporting and the preparation of presentations to investors/ board.

    Career Growth and Development

  • We have a strong culture of constant learning and we invest in developing our people. You’ll have weekly check-ins with your manager, access to mentorship and training programs, and regular feedback on your performance. We hold career reviews every six months, and set aside time to discuss your aspirations and career goals. You’ll have the opportunity to shape a growing organization and build a rewarding long-term career.


    Across all roles, these are the general qualifications we look for. For this role specifically, you will have:

  • 3 or more years of work experience in finance such as private equity, venture capital, investment banking, or related field.

  • 5+ years for the Manager level role.

  • Bachelor or Master's degree in economics, business, finance, or related field.

  • Experience with financial and operational due diligence of early-stage businesses and strong grasp of financial statements.
