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


John's story

John has lived in Viwandani, an informal settlement in Nairobi, Kenya, for the past twelve years. The father of two is a shrewd businessman who is able to analyse the market conditions and viability of any products and services that he decides to offer his customers. He has built and sustained businesses such as video shows, barber shops and farming. From his judgement, Fresh Life toilets are affordable to area residents, and the absence of a sanitation facility in the vicinity makes his choice very strategic. He will therefore be able to provide residents in his area with sanitation while making a profit. He hopes that the Fresh Life toilets will be as successful as he has calculated and that he will expand the benefits of better sanitation to other parts of the informal settlement. John dreams big and wants to own a company as well as be a front liner in community sanitation initiatives. As a family man, he wants to be able to sustain his family as long as he lives.
