It was at this time when Elizabeth Muthoka Wayoike famously known as Lizzie Wayoike devoted her hard earned savings of Ksh 6 million and a added loan of Ksh 4 million to establish NIBS college in Nairobi.

Lizzie came from a humble background in Muranga working as a tutor earning ksh 961 a month and despite this, she has grown to be a role model to young girls, women and the entire society. She has been a resilient, persevering and determined woman in her course of hardwork even when things seemed to go south.Photo:(courtesy) @PM Photography, Lizzie Wayoike
