Anthony was born in Machakos, a town southwest of Nairobi, Kenya. He moved to the Mukuru informal settlement of the capital city in early 2013. Upon arrival, he went to visit a friend who stayed in the informal settlement, which was when he first saw a Fresh Life toilet. Due to his desire to be an entrepreneur, he thought that he could invest in the sanitation business and make a living out of it.

Anthony therefore seeks funding to purchase and run two Fresh Life toilets. He hopes to use these as his main source of income for the time he will be staying in Nairobi. Anthony hopes to lead a comfortable life with what he earns from his investment. He dreams of a future in which his venture will expand and enable him improve his standard of living.
