A loan of $725 helped to purchase and run two Fresh Life Toilets.

Josephine's story

Josephine has lived in the Mukuru informal settlement of Nairobi for ten years, where she and her husband, a contract worker, have started a family. Her four children--two boys and two girls--are the primary reason Josphine wants a Fresh Life Toilet: she dreams of being able to pay for their school fees through secondary school. Her first-born is currently in standard 5.

Running a business is not new to Josephine; she owns a small shop and is also a trained tailor, specializing in embroidered tablecloth. Josephine manages her family’s affairs with the money she gets from her businesses. Once her children are through school, Josephine’s hope is that her Fresh Life toilet will bring in enough profits for her to expand her business ventures to commercial vehicles.
