The Alliance Produce Company was formed "to secure the laborer a more just and equitable share in the product of his labor." The company intended to assist in marketing products, making loans for homes and equipment for pursuing a trade, and providing credit. The company was headquartered in Topeka, Kansas, and the president was P. B. Maxson of Emporia, Kansas. The board of directors included men from various Kansas communities. This company was viewed as part of the Farmers Alliance and Populist movements that believed that economic and governmental practices favored banks, railroads, and large companies at the expense of the laborer. It apparently intended to assist laborers by providing affordable credit.
