We are a proud Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action employer and are supportive of family, wellness, and a healthy work-life balance.

CNFA’s staff is the most significant driver in pursuing our mission to stimulate economic growth and improve livelihoods by cultivating entrepreneurship. We champion the entrepreneurial spirit at all levels and embrace the notion that bold development solutions can come from singular, sometimes unexpected sources. Recognizing this is inherent in our DNA. Our diverse organization has grown to more than 500 employees worldwide – we are not only development experts but are also experienced business owners, agronomists, and farmers. As a global team, this collective knowledge shapes and informs our work. But what truly sets our staff apart is their passion and commitment to help those we work with – smallholder farmers, entrepreneurs, women, children and youth.
