Retired district nurse, Christine Lloyd keeps seven hens in the vegetable garden of her home in the village of Hallbankgate near Brampton. For the past two years she has deposited the money made from the sale of her eggs into a Share Account.
I opened my Share Account with £100 and top it up with the sale of the eggs. I don't make a great deal of money from the eggs, but it makes me realise that if this was the only way I had of making a living then I wouldn't be able to afford the luxuries in life we all take for granted. For me, I know that whilst my money is with Shared Interest, it is being lent out time and time again to fair trade projects in the developing world to help them grow their businesses and provide an income for their families and benefits to their communities.
