100% of Deki lenders' money goes directly to their chosen entrepreneurs. Always. But in order for this to carry on, we need to raise funds.

Over the last three years Deki has increased the number of loans it provides by 400% while operating on a shoe string. We want to continue growing BUT we can't do it without donations from people like you. There are so many more people we can help.

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.

Every donation gives more entrepreneurs like Halima the opportunities they need to build a brighter future for their family.
