About Us


We are a community benefit society which acts co-operatively and the world's only 100% fair trade lender.

Our members share our vision of a world where justice is at the heart of trade finance.

We form the vital link between UK social investors and fair trade organisations needing finance to improve their livelihoods.

Your investment may not make you rich but it will enrich the lives of others.

You can start today. Invest your money in Shared Interest and invest in a fairer world.

Shared Interest is needed now more than ever - to lend to producers and companies dedicated to fairer trade.
