Artisan Story

Netra Basanet learned strong fair trade business practices from his uncle, Hari Basanet, the founder of CBA.  By shadowing his work at CBA for many years, Netra witnessed the benefits of long term employment, fair wages, and worker development funds.  He assisted in creating open lines of communication between management and producers while calculating fair, livable wages. In 2016 Netra decided he wanted to establish his own business.  With Ganesh Himal Trading’s support, he worked diligently to create new items that complemented CBA’s products while Ganesh Himal worked to ensure the size and frequency of orders placed with CBA did not change.  Today, Netra employs 12 women.

Ganesh Himal Trading believes that building long lasting relationships based on trust, dialogue and mutual respect is key to community building and helps move us toward a more equitable futureStriving for economic justice is where their business began. When Ganesh Himal Trading was established, they decided to seek out producer groups that worked with marginalized individuals (e.g. women and Tibetan refugees) so they could gain access to trading relationships for economic mobility. This has led to years of partnering with women producers to co-create a world where women have control over their money, are empowered to make their own decisions and have a respected voice in all discussions. Overall, they believe that trade is interrelational and that access to trading relationships is key to enhancing people’s lives and traditions. They have also committed to facilitating solutions to other economic barriers (i.e. healthcare, education) through their non-profit, Conscious Connections Foundation.
