Who we finance


Shared Interest lends funds to fair trade buyer and producer organisations. The majority of our lending now goes to producers in more remote areas across the globe that are unable to access fair finance.

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, Ghana and Costa Rica.

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.
