How Esther found Deki

Lowering the hurdles with training

Over the summer months, rainfall in Uganda can be scarce, but now Esther’s farm is flourishing. Along with her loan, Deki’s Local Expert taught her how to create a simple irrigation system.

Esther now uses just one bucket to water her crops, rather than eight like before.

After 6 years, Esther is now on her 3rd Deki loan. Her farm has tripled in size and she even employs a member of her community. A big achievement for a single mother in Uganda!

Her children are in school and they’ve just had a tin roof installed on their house.

Reducing dampness and the chance of contracting malaria. She even pays for a pitch at the local market.

Deki’s Local Experts travel for hours to remote communities to disburse your loans, collect repayments and support people like Esther. But it’s about more than just money.


They work with the hardest-to-reach communities, providing invaluable business and social training to entrepreneurs like Esther.

Escaping the cycle of poverty

 

Deki’s field partners - our Local Experts - have been involved in every single one of the 52,317 lives we’ve changed.

This is Esther's story.

Esther has lived in the same remote village, farming the same plot of land, her entire life. She never went to school and the opportunities for her and her children are minimal.

Life is hard for Esther.

Days of going without are common.

But she has a plan…

How our Local Experts support entrepreneurs every step of the way.

DONATE TO THE
DEKI APPEAL

Esther heard that there was a group of women in a nearby village that had been receiving Deki loans. She wanted to see for herself and walked with her children for three hours.

The crops on one side of the village were arid. The other side, who's farmers had all received a Deki loan, was green and abundant.

Local Experts play a leading role in developing strong and vibrant societies. Our long-term aim is for our Local Experts to become financially independent, enabling Deki tp support even more communities.

It costs Deki £580 to manage all seven of our current Local Experts, per day, impacting thousands of lives on a daily basis.
