Set up by Vashti Seth in 2008, Deki supports people in developing countries to work their way out of poverty by offering microloans (which combine to form larger loans) to entrepreneurs.
With an average loan size of £150, a number of people will lend to each entrepreneur. 100% of the money loaned goes directly to that person and within 12 months the money is paid back – it can then be returned to the lender or re-lent to another entrepreneur. Even a small initial investment can help a number of people to raise themselves out of poverty.
Good Full Stop owner Richard Stoker is a proud supporter of Deki and was one of the first contributors when it was first founded. Richard says: “I feel a sense of comradeship with the other entrepreneurs around the world that Deki supports.”
