Fairtrade sotrami mine, peru
"Artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) attracts those on low income. Miners and their families live in nearby Santa Filomena, which was established by small-scale agriculturalists, unemployed and landless people displaced by violence in other regions of Peru, who took to informal mining. The mine supports 500 families."
