Job Description
To generate more impact for more farm families on a national level, One Acre Fund is developing new business units within the organization to push innovation in retail, finance and marketing in rural communities. In particular, the Rural Retail Unit aims to rapidly accelerate the distribution of impact-generating products and services to rural communities via One Acre Fund Outlets or 'Dukas' that provide products, financing and training to clients.
The vast majority of the world's smallholder farmers do not have access to the goods and services they need to succeed. Where retailers do exist, the quality of inputs is often variable and farmers often do not have the capital to purchase goods, nor the training to make the best use of them. The Rural Retail program exists to solve these problems on a global scale.
The Rural Retail program is designed to scale rapidly; our goal is to serve more than 100,000 clients in the next five years and become one of the largest retailers in rural East Africa. The program is also designed to scale as a business – we will generate annual profits to fund our scaling program impact. Having proven concept, we are seeking exceptional individuals to join this early stage team to design and scale this new business model.
