orange girl

A young girl plays with oranges on a truck taking the fruit to market from Tierra Nueva coop member Remigio Espinoza. Orange trees are used as vital shade for the coffee plantation and provide an extra income. Tierra Nueva coop in Boaco, Nicaragua, has more than 500 producer members, and is fairtrade-certified. Fairtrade is an alternative approach to conventional trade and is based on a partnership between producers and consumers. Fairtrade offers producers a better deal and improved terms of trade. This allows them the opportunity to improve their lives and plan for their future. Fairtrade offers consumers a powerful way to reduce poverty through their every day shopping.
