Shared Interest is a community benefit society which acts co-operatively and the world’s only 100% fair trade lender. Their members share their vision of a world where justice is at the heart of trade finance.
Established in 1990 they form the vital link between UK social investors and fair trade organisations needing finance to improve their livelihoods. While investments with Shared Interest may not make our members financially rich they do enrich the lives of others.
