Who we finance

ANDEAN NATURALS WWF WEB

Shared Interest lends funds to fair trade buyer and producer organisations. The majority of our lending is actually made to buyer organisations in Europe and North America. This helps us reach producers in more remote areas across the globe that may not be able to lend from us directly.

Increasing our direct lending to producer groups remains one of our priorities and it is increasing year on year thanks to our people working on the ground in Kenya, Peru and Ghana.

I want to work for Shared Interest as I see fair trade as a tool to generate equity in the world. It is important to be part of the solution; to create the right environment for fair trade to take place. To do this, I think we need to work with wisdom and compassion. It is the meeting of hearts and minds.
