Our Mission

Ten by Three® reduces poverty in developing countries by using our unique Prosperity Wages® model to pay for artisan products. This exclusive patent pending financial model creates a cycle of entrepreneur driven growth resulting in permanent financial independence for the artisan.

Nonprofit & Beyond Fair Trade

Ten by Three® is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization that believes the rural poor in developing countries are quite capable of pulling themselves out of poverty. We use a financial model which we have been perfecting for more than a decade. Our exclusive model allows artisans to earn significantly higher than fair trade wages for their products for a given period of time.

Prosperity Wages

With every basket purchased, Ten by Three Prosperity Wages model is being used to pay our artisans. This portion of the profit is significantly higher than fair trade wages, in some countries reaching more than six times fair trade. Read more about our Prosperity Wages model here.

The name Ten by Three was inspired by the underlying formula responsible for the success of our Prosperity Wages Model. When we purchase ten products a month at Prosperity Wages from an artisan over the course of 3 years, our artisans reach the tipping point towards a sustainable end to poverty.
