Partnering Your Business with Deki

Are you considering a charity partnership for your business? Deki needs your help!

Deki delivers microloans to entrepreneurs in developing countries, enabling these entrepreneurs to start or develop a business and work themselves out of poverty, every loan we deliver impacts the lives of at least six people.

For Deki entrepreneurs, a loan means an increased ability to:

  • Access clean water
  • Provide their family with more than one meal a day
  • Send her children to school and help secure their futures

We believe that a successful corporate-charity partnership works well when it enhances your reputation, aligns with your business strategy, brings your staff together and helps us to lift more people out of poverty in the developing world.

Why do we need the help of businesses like yours?

100% of Deki micro-loans go directly to entrepreneurs who are working their way out of poverty. To enable us to continue to provide loans, we fundraise to cover running costs. Individuals make a donation when they make a loan, and corporates support our work with annual gifts. Without their support none of our work would be possible.

By partnering with Deki you will be joining organisations like The University of the West of England, four times Oscar winning studio Aardman Animations, Friska Food and Ocean Estate Agents.
