Deki is proud that 100% of the money you lend through us goes toward lender's chosen entrepreneurs.
Deki does not charge our entrepreneurs any interest fees and loans are repaid, which means you then have then opportunity to relend your loan to another entrepreneur.
However, this means that we rely on donations to operate. If you would like to help Deki reach more and more entrepreneurs in the developing world, then please donate today.
Halima Namutosi is a 24-year-old refugee from South Sudan. She lives in Northern Uganda with her husband and three children aged 4, 6 and 8 years.
Halima settled in Namboole, in the outskirts of Kampala city. Her life was tough – Halima’s family lived in a mud house with no electricity and had to share a toilet with their neighbours. Eventually only Halima got a job making clay stoves, but work wasn’t guaranteed so she couldn’t afford to enrol her children at the local school. Her husband remained unemployed.
She applied for a loan of £240 which she spent on a wheel barrow, a rake and raw clay materials. Halima’s cooking pots were top quality and her business started to attract more and more customers. Soon she needed to hire two employees to help her make 500 pots a week.
Halima began generating steady income that she was able to reinvest. Since her loan Halima’s earning potential has tripled and she is now able to pay for her children’s school fees and move to a better house with a tin roof and electricity. In the future Halima would like to educate her three children to university level.
