  • What was my life like before Fair Trade? When I was growing up life was really hard. I worked on the farm with my family from 7 in the morning until 8 in the evening. About 10 years ago the price of my bananas started to fall rapidly. This was because lots of other countries were now producing bananas and if I didn’t reduce the price of my bananas I wouldn’t be able to sell any at all. I was struggling to look after my family properly. Back then we were spraying the banana trees with chemicals so that the insects didn’t destroy them. Sometimes I got some of this spray into my eyes and it really stung, so badly that it hurt to open them and I had to stay in bed for a few days. Thankfully all this changed 5 years ago… How can Fairtrade help reduce the gap between MEDC’s and LEDC’s?
