Mawufeassi Community Group

As mothers and business owners, we understand the potential that microloans and training have to create positive change.

Empowered by their success, Deki Entrepreneurs Agambi Kumia (pictured below with her stall) and Massanvi Esse, set up the all-female Mawufeassi group in the spring of 2017. As mothers, business-owners and former beneficiaries of Deki loans, Agambi and Massanvi understood the potential that ethical microloans and training has to create positive change. By setting up Mawufeassi group they encouraged other women in the community to start their own journeys towards financial inclusion and out of poverty – they are true change-makers.

Since its formation, the Mawufeassi Community Group has continued to attract new members. In this cycle, 15 members are applying for a loan- 4 are applying for their very first Deki loan, 3 for their second, 7 for their third, and 1 is applying for her fourth.

When asked about their ambitions for the future, some of the women answered that they want to be able open their own shops, others answered that they aimed to be able to purchase land and build their own home.

Add Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!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.
