In March 2016, I had the honour to meet Fatima, director of the coffee cooperation SOPEXXCCA in Nicaragua. She had been invited to assist at the Fairtrade Fortnight Event, hosted by Aberdeen For A Fairer World MDEC in cooperation with NorthLink Ferries. Business Owners and Companies, including the Co-Op Supermarket Chain, attended the event to learn more about opportunities to implement fairly traded products or consider FairTrade in their services.

During Fatima’s presentation, I interpreted from Spanish to English.
