About Us

We believe in a fairer world

Shared Interest is a community benefit society. We bring together investors who want to make a difference.

Over our 34 year history, our members have helped support millions of people with limited income to grow their businesses, and earn a fair living. Our regional teams understand their daily challenges and successes, and together we enable producer organisations to finance orders, access working capital, purchase essential machinery and infrastructure. Once they sell their crops or crafts, they pay back the loan, and we lend this money again. 

Your investment will not make you rich but it will enrich the lives of others.

You can start today by opening a Share Account with an investment of between £100 and £100,000.

"Shared Interest is needed now more than ever - to lend to producers and companies dedicated to fairer trade."
