Change lives with Deki Friends

Join the Deki Friends lending team and donate monthly to help us stop poverty and start changing lives. 

Every month, 100% of your donation will be combined with other Deki Friends' donations and lent directly to our entrepreneurs in Malawi, Ghana, Tanzania, Togo, South Africa, Uganda and South Sudan to help them start sustainable businesses.

As the money is repaid it goes into the joint lending pot and is then re-lent every month without fail. It is a highly effective way to lend as we manage the loans on your behalf - taking the hassle out of re-lending and ensuring your money is managed in the most effective way.

As a Deki Friend, you will be donating, not directly lending, so if you are a UK tax payer we will be able to claim a further 25% Gift Aid on everything you give. This money will be used to enable Deki to continue delivering the loans.
