ABOUT ONE ACRE FUND
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 training 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.
The FAS Unit at One Acre Fund combines strategy, financial and operational analysis, and process design and implementation. We advise One Acre Fund Rwanda’s Country Director and Division Heads on strategic planning and resource allocation from our financial and quantitative analysis and work on shorter-term projects across functions to rapidly solve problems and drive key initiatives forward.
An intern on our team will mainly be working on shorter-term projects, that will involve customer, market research, and financial data analysis, data modeling or, due to the dynamic nature of the team(at FAS no day is ever the same), responding to quick requests that arise. Working on shorter-term projects will give the intern a good overview of what we do and is a good chance to obtain exposure to different teams and tasks. The role has a heavy analytical component as we look to back up research and qualitative trends with numbers. Clear writing and communication are essential.
