About Us


Our aim is to alleviate poverty by enabling people in remote and disadvantaged communities, to trade and earn a living.

We do this by pooling the investments of our members and lend these funds to farmers and handcraft producers, who buy seeds, fertilisers and raw materials.   Once they sell their crops or crafts, they pay back the loan, and we lend this money again.

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.
