Amenuveve Community Group

The Amenuveve Group was formed in 2017, established at the Adidogomé market. An entrepreneur running a small stall there told others about the opportunity she had through IADES to get a loan and training for her business.

Word of mouth spread and soon the Amenuveve group was formed. The group now has 11 members and five of them are getting their very first loan. The group has a diverse pool of entrepreneurs, their businesses range from selling vegetables and charcoal, cooking essentials, such as oil, condiments and spices, grains, fresh and fried yams or preparing and selling Akpan. Akpan (pictured below) is made by slightly fermenting flour or maize and is served with condensed milk, sugar and ice. Akpan comes from the failed preparation of akassa, which has a slightly fermented taste and is eaten with fish or meat sauce.

The Amenuveve is an ambitious group – they are looking forward to improving their businesses and become financially resilient thanks to generous sponsors, such as yourself. The loans and varied business and financial training will empower this community group to improve their living conditions, increase their revenue to create a bright future for their children.

Add Gift Aid

Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Deki to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Deki we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Deki to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Deki will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Deki receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
