He lives together with his mother and little sisters in the slums of Nairobi, the capital of Kenya.

This will supplement his family’s income and will be enough for Kimaru to go to school again. But rearing chicks is not easy at all for a city boy like Kimaru. Will he succeed in starting a small business in eggs to help meet his school fees?
