Trading Our Way Up details an action research project that examined the experiences of women producers in collective enterprises. The Global Trade Programme at WIEGO, in partnership with leading Fair Trade organizations and networks, worked with local organizations of women producers in seven countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America between 2009 – 2011.

The focus was on documenting, analyzing and disseminating key success factors for women engaged in Fair Trade collectives.
