Shared Interest provides finance for fair trade. It has about 8500 members who lend money to the Society at very modest rates of interest (currently nil). The Society uses that capital to provide fair trade producers and buyers with much needed credit and loans on fair terms. It is the world’s leading fair trade finance organisation, providing finance for over 10% of fair trade sales around the world.
If you would like to find out more about the organisation visit the Shared Interest website (link opposite) or send your contact details to the Felixstowe Fairtrade Forum Secretary who will pass them on to the local representative for Shared Interest (see Contact us).
