Fair Trade

Our Mission

Pro pueblo is a proud member of the WFTO – World Fair Trade Organization.

Pro Pueblo is invested in creating sustainable income opportunities leading to poverty alleviation, improved livelihoods, and environmental stewardship.

Pro Pueblo is a non-paternalistic fair trade organization. Our goal is to establish a sustainable handicraft business, which provides a long-term stable income for the artisans. For this reason, it is crucial that the prices are fair and permit a realistic and sustainable profit margin.

The artisans are paid per item delivered and initially, the cost is caculated according to the hours involved in crafting a product, amounting to the equivalent of the minimum wage plus an entrepreneurial margin. As the artisans gain experience and improve efficiency they reduce the production time, thus enabling them to raise their income per worked hour.
