Fair Trade is about self respect and human dignity. The Apartheid times gave my self-confidence a huge set-back. I now have confidence in myself, I know that I can rely on myself without fear or shame. Fair Trade has helped to give me a place in the sun as a woman who can express her own views and take positions. In the past we, as women, never had the privilege to express ourselves, but now we are able to stand our ground. We no longer need to stand back for the men, and can take up our places in the business world.
