Martin Canning - Shared Interest Investing

Mon, Aug 23rd 2021 at 6:45 pm - 8:00 pm

Speaker Mtg. This week our speaker focusses on changing lives by breaking the circle of poverty through the creation of resilient businesses

Shared Interest say - Our loans and credit facilities ensure that fair trade farmers are paid on time for their crops.

Our finance helps handcraft organisations to buy raw materials, and enables co-operatives to pre-finance orders from their overseas buyers. 

We lend to organisations that follow Fair Trade Principles, to support products such as coffee, fresh fruit, nuts, and cocoa, as well as handcrafts such as weaved baskets and furniture.

This year we made payments totalling £68.7m to 297 organisations in 52 countries.

Fifty-one-year-old Kansole Eli, said: "I used to depend on my relatives' help to feed my family but with the improvement in my income, I was able to provide food for my children without any external help."
