For Loriana, the job at Rainbow Fruit came after a difficult time when she had no job and her mother became ill.
"I was unemployed for five years. At that time my mother also got sick so I had to look after her, then I got married in 2005. My husband, Mario, was working at a printers and he still works there. It was difficult when I wasn't working. It was only his income so we have to be very stingy with money."
"I gave my CV into a place where they have jobs for people. It was in November 2006 and I got a call to come for an interview and I started 2nd January 2007 [at Rainbow Fruit]. This is a very nice place to work. The staff are very friendly."
"Management is very good to us. We are very close, management and staff and they give more opportunities. I love to work here. It is a wonderful opportunity."
Fair Trade Fruit
Rainbow Fruits is a small packing unit, based in South Africa. Dried fruit is cut and packed by a group of previously disadvantaged black women. Working with Rainbow Fruits has given them access to training and personal development.
A Workers Trust has been set up, involving them as shareholders in the business. On-going business training is equipping them to take more active and informed roles. This type of small business, with worker shareholders, is pioneering in South Africa. Find out more about Rainbow Fruit & fair trade in South Africa »
