The name "Latitudes" has a dual purpose or meaning that provides some insight into our business:
1) Geography - represents different areas around the world where we engage in small business development.
2) Freedom - to remove obstacles or limitations. Extending freedom through business, emphasizing fair trade and treating artisans with dignity and respect.
Latitudes provides a genuine business outlet to artisans in isolated areas around the world. We desire to have a positive impact in their families and community through micro-business enterprises. We create and encourage an environment of support for the artisans who work in these businesses by giving them a market to sell their hand-made products. In addition to buying products we offer training in business management, help develop new products, and provide basic education for our workers and their family.
Through Latitudes, a tangible expression of love is powerfully worked out in their midst. We are helping numerous groups around the world by providing a place to distribute and market their handcrafted products. This helps to provide much needed income to the artisans and thus helps provide stability and opportunity to the community.
