Asaph was born in 1996, the eldest of two children in his family. When he was ten years old his father and mother were diagnosed with HIV and shortly thereafter his father died. Asaph joined the Ngong Road Children’s Foundation program in 2008. He successfully finished high school and joined St. Paul’s University where he got a two-year degree in business management.
Karibu Loo hired Asaph as an administrative and marketing assistant for two years. While there, Asaph was offered a higher salary by Patiala Distillers where he was in charge of inventory control for 16 months. He obviously impressed his employers since he was promoted at the end of that assignment. He became the Sales Supervisor in the Mount Kenya region for a year and just recently was promoted yet again to be an Assistant Key Account Manager in the Nairobi headquarters of Patiala Distillers.
Asaph’s mother is still alive but has been diagnosed with cervical cancer in addition to HIV. He is her sole source of support and both are so grateful that he is able to do so. Asaph demonstrates the grit, determination and focus one would expect to see in a young man who has moved so quickly upward in his career.
