PFTA Cooperatives

Cooperatives connect farmers and producers of hand made traditional products in the mutual endeavor of fair trade and make available certifications and markets unavailable to individual producers. As producers they adhere strictly to internationally recognized fair trade and organic standards. As members of cooperatives, they form associations and networks for cooperative decision making and problem solving. The skills and networks established in the fair trade environment are available in addressing other issues. Participatory, collective decision making is empowering, reinforcing the value of each individual's contribution. In addition, the combined reinvestment of collectives makes a significant, empowering impact on the community; each cooperative decides where to spend the money.
