They can't live by themselves because they don't have a continuing income in their home if they just get money.
However, activities of Face Trade can solve a lot of problems.
In Fair Trade, laborers can work safely because of using certified farms. In addition, laborers can have the significance of working continuously by having proper job and working environment.
