The Woman Helping Thousands Out Of Poverty with Vashti Seth of Deki | EP 008


Vashti Seth is the founder of microfinance charity Deki.

After the death of her father she received a few thousand pounds with a handwritten note "Do something good."

She travelled across India with the aim of visiting a Tibetan refugee whom her father had sponsored for many years, called Deki Dolkha.

It was here she had the spark of the idea to start Deki.

Vashti talks about:

  • How empowering others can help change the world   
  • The tipping point for the charity and how it grew tenfold overnight
  • How microloans work in places in Africa and why it gives people dignity
  •  How she started the charity with a newborn and a laptop
  • What the death of her father taught her
  • The power of purpose
