Our Field Partners are grassroot microfinance organisations who are instrumental to Deki's success. They support our entrepreneurs to access Deki loans, provide them with business training and manage their repayments.
New Home realised that business loans and training could help this very disadvantaged group of people in Kasese to build better lives for them-selves and their families. They were able to start making loans to entrepreneurs through the creation of a very small loan fund, built up with donations from board members and local supporters. These loans helped people to build businesses and livelihoods in areas such as trading, agriculture, animal husbandry and fish farming, plus skilled trades for young men such as brick-laying.
