    Fairtrade Fortnight - Maria Deserves

    Wednesday, 27 February 2019  |  Joanna

    This is Maria with her Mum. Maria is a banana farmer from the Dominican Republic. Her co-operative uses some of the Fairtrade premium they get from selling their bananas to put on training courses.

    Both Maria and her Mum have learned how to turn the fibrous leaves of her banana plants into baskets.

    Making the baskets is a vital second income for the women, and brings in money when their bananas are not yet ready to harvest.
