Empowering people living in poverty to create sustainable livelihoods by providing access to ethical microloans and training.
Vashti Seth set up Deki in 2008, inspired by the story of Deki Dolkha, who was a Tibetan refugee sponsored by Vashti’s father.
Deki loans impact on family life, personal finance and the local economy:
- Entrepreneurs have the ability to support their extended family
- Training entrepreneurs in business gives them confidence to employ local people in the community
- Local employment opportunities are created
- Increased profits are spent in the local community, boosting the local economy
