Bio-Nature Cooperative goal £911

39% funded

The 18 members of the Bio-Nature cooperative, are a very new group and only came together in July.

Their first loan will give the cooperative, of rice, corn and cereal farmers, the chance to invest in their businesses for the first time. They will use the loan to buy seeds and fertiliser which will enable them to move away from subsistence farming and start to increase their yield and productivity.

The difference the loan will make gives hope to the group. Many of them hope to be able to improve their family’s living conditions and move out of poverty and hunger. They wish to support their family’s needs and send their children to school

Widow, 27 year old Afi, cares for her children and parents and hopes one day to become a goat breeder as well as a rice farmer, to give her and her family a more secure income.

55 year old Ayawa and his wife both work up to 60 hours per week in the field to look after their children and other family members, and the loan will help them to increase the size of their land and therefore increase their harvest. Ayawa hopes one day to be able to build his family a home.

Being a part of the cooperative allows the members to be able to think about their futures and gives them hope for a better life.

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.
