What is a Deki microloan gift certificate we hear you ask, well for as little as £10, your mum can help an entrepreneurial mum from a developing country grow her business and safeguard her family’s livelihood, and when it’s repaid, she can withdraw, donate or invest in another. It is called the ‘Mum-tiplier’ effect.
Deki Microloan recipients tend to be developing world mothers who are faced with issues of feeding, clothing and sending their children to school, and who run small businesses, many of which are thriving. These businesses often require small investments to increase profits and create sustainable incomes.
