Dokpalala is a community made up of sixteen members comprise five women and eleven men who farm the land to provide for their families. They range in age from 31 to 69.

At 69, Kossiwa Ablometi is their oldest member. He is a widower with twelve grown up children aged between 29 and 50. He still looks after some of them and a few of his own siblings who require financial support. He’s a simple man who says all he wants to do is works hard to take care of his children.

Kodzo Agbozo is 31, and the youngest member of the group. He is married with four children aged 15, 9, 6 and just 1. Three of his children attend school whilst he and his wife grow maize and pineapples to make a living. In the future Kodzo wants is to increase his plot size and be able to build a house for his family.

Despite the difference in their ages all the members of the group share an ambition – to provide a better standard of living for their family and to give their children the opportunity of an education and a better future.

This will be the second loan that the group has received. They have fully repaid their first loans and received a range of useful trainings, from business planning, to getting the most out of their land and planning for loans repayments. They are now ready for another loan as they are beginning farming activities next season. The loan will help them to have better harvests and sell their crops at a better price.

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.
