Fair Trade & Fair Finance

50% advance payments are a key principle of Fair Trade. Fair Trade’s main objective is to promote good incomes and livelihoods for the most marginalised people and communities in the developing world. We meet Artisan Hut, Swallows, Assisi Garments, and KTS in Bangladesh, India and Nepal, who talk about just how important these 50% advance payments are in helping expand Fair Trade business and bring the benefits of Fair Trade to a wider community.
