The Arrosoir & Persil Team

The workshop fair trade in Zimbabwe
 
Our workshop is a joyful clanging chorus of songs, jokes, angle grinders and hammering.  
 
We have a friendly and long-lasting relationship with the craftsmen. We make interest-free loans on a regular basis (to buy some land, a house or some large household appliance) to be repaid over a long period of time. Fervent advocate of fair trade values, we are members of MINGA. This professional organization of international stature, works since 2013 for a more fair trade socially and more ecologically responsible.
 
We provide free accommodation for a sculpting artist, Maxwell Gotchera, who skilfully recycles our own scrap metal.
 
Meetings are regularly held with all the craftsmen to discuss our organization and solve any problems that might arise, on a professional as well as on a personal level, because we want to make sure we keep a good atmosphere and we think it is one of the key elements for our team to stay close over the years.
