Deki receives a PETT donation of a desktop.
Deki are a charitable company that offers micro finance loans to entrepreneurs in Africa. They provide those who need it the most, with an opportunity to work their way out of poverty. Deki connects lenders in the UK with entrepreneurs in Africa through the Deki website. They crowdfund for loans, then keep lenders informed about their entrepreneurs progress. 100% of each loan goes directly to the lender’s chosen entrepreneur. The loan is repaid to the lender within 12-18 months. After this, the lender has the option to take out their money or reinvest in another entrepreneur, meaning that their donation can be recycled over and over. To date we have lent over £1,000,000 and changed 40,491 lives.
