lessons from nicaragua


With the Fairtrade Wales annual conference in Swansea on the horizon (see here for details), a member of the Campaign’s delegation to Nicaragua in February has written of her experience.

Haf Elgar has written a post on the Fairtrade Wales blog (see here). In Lessons from Nicaragua she describes a visit to farmers in San Benito, part of an Accion Medica Cristiana project. She speaks about a meeting with Santiago Dolmus of CECOCAFEN, one of the co-operative organisations that supports many small co-ops in the country. To finish, she details the discussions with Pedro Haslam, Minister for Community, Co-operatives and the Associative Economy (we have written before on the blog about Pedro – see soy puro pinolero).
