A loan of $350 helped to buy utensils, plates, a table, and ingredients for my restaurant so that it can grow.


Michael's story

My name is Michael Mutisya Mutua. I am now 28 years old. I am married and have one daugther. She is now 5 years. I was born in Dangoretti Corner in Nairobi province. I have 5 brothers and 5 sisters. I am the first born.

I was a street boy. I used to stay in Nairobi in a place called Jivanjee Gardens, and that was where I was rescued from. A man named Reverend Pastor Baxic Oumo used to come to preach in Nairobi. When he started a center, he brought us in. I grew in the city with no education. I started my education from the center. I came out from the street and when I started, I started from class four. I learned to read and write. I am still close with the pastor. When I finished my education that is when I started my business.

I like business and I like teaching. And I also like adventure. I like to watch wildlife. My favorite animal is the warthog.
