FLO’s Fairtrade Access Fund Reports $3.7M in Long-term Financing Distributed to 7 Coops So Far

The Fairtrade Access Fund, established by Fairtrade International (FLO) to address the long-term financing needs for smallholder farmers in developing countries, is growing fast.  So far, a total of US$ 3.7 million has been distributed to seven cooperatives in Latin America, and the Fund is continuing to gather steam. By the end of 2013, the Fund is expected to grow to US$ 25 million, and will eventually expand to Africa and Asia.
