Provide lending directly to producer businesses
By connecting smallholder farmers and artisans to commercial markets, our lending has the opportunity to help provide employment to rural populations.
Diversification of our lending
We have further diversified the products our lending supports to mitigate against risk exposure in coffee.
Our Lending Team consults with customers throughout the year but in addition to this, we undertake surveys and hold producer committees.
Building sustainable support for fair trade businesses
Last year, our charitable arm, Shared Interest Foundation undertook a Strategic Review to give a clear direction for the next five years.
