Deki & Friska Partnership Shortlisted for Guardian Award
Excitingly the Deki-Friska Partnership was shortlisted for The Guardian Sustainable Business Awards 2014 in the Social Impact category.
For the past year Friska has supported Deki entrepreneurs with a ‘Deki Dish’. 10p from each Deki Dish goes to support an entrepreneur each month. With the capital and skills to start a business, these hardworking entrepreneurs are able to create sustainable livelihoods and boost their local economies. All the entrepreneurs funded through the partnership are featured under the Friska Lending Team.
For the past eight months, Pho Noodles has been the nominated Deki Dish. By now the customers know that when they choose to buy this particular dish, they help to fund a small business owner.
