A Shared Interest loan helped banana
producers, Cepibo, in Peru install a cableway so farmers no longer
need to carry bananas on their backs to the packing plants. Banana
farming is labour intensive, and smallholder farmers are struggling
to make a living due to the low prices we pay in our shops. Opening
a Shared Interest account helps provide fair finance to producers
like Cepibo in some of the world's poorest countries as they trade
their way out of poverty.

banana producers we invest in on our banana producer pages, or
