Fair Trade Artisans: Ecuador: Camari Camari, which means "gift" in the Quechua language, was started in 1981 to respond to the problems facing small farmers and artisans of Ecuador in selling their products. Because of a lack of markets, many artisans and farmers were forced to sell to intermediaries at a low price and could not make a living. Camari offers artisans and farmers direct marketing outlets and fair payment. Today, through the sales of their products, they are providing alternative employment to more than 6,500 farmer and artisan families.
