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


Francis's story

Francis is a businessman in Mukuru kwa Ruben, an informal settlement in Nairobi, Kenya.

His business interests in the informal settlement include water points that provide residents with safe drinking water and rental houses. Although he does not currently live in the community, the father of three was able to move himself out of the informal settlement by seizing business opportunities that presented themselves.

He first saw the Fresh Life toilet at a local pub and learned more about it from a pitch done to church members. He believes the toilets will provide residents with accessible sanitation and a cleaner environment.

He hopes to add more Fresh Life toilets to the community and be part of the solution to the sanitation challenges facing area residents.

His life long dream is to build a decent house for himself and educate his children to the highest level possible.
