Moyo is a male, African banded mongoose who was born at home on May 1st, 1954 in what was then British occupied Kenya. Moyo is of a mild mannered demeanor and appears outwardly to be a bit naive, but sees things as they really are. Moyo is loving, sexy and cute. His sexual orientation is straight, and he is loyal in any sexual relationship. Moyo is also honest. He feels more comfortable with someone having $50 that belongs to him, than to have $50 of someone else's money wrongfully taken.
Moyo lives in mountainous countryside (highlands), where the nearest railroad and divided highway is more than an hour's drive away. There is some illiteracy, little modern technology  and the locals have always been poor. But everyone is helpful to each other. And Moyo gets by well with a 7th grade education.
Moyo is 7th born on May 1st, 1954...And like his eight siblings; Chege (3-25-35 m), Makena (2-4-39 f), Kioni (4-8-44 f), Ruguru (1-15-47 m), Chanya (3-6-49 f), *Kanja (12-15-52 m), Jomo (9-10-55 m) and Jabet (8-30-57 f), are 1/4 binturong and 1/4 Pokot tribal African banded mongoose from their mother, Aluna Jais Mongoose (formally Aluna Tatazu Mongoose {pronounced Ah-loo'-nah Tat-taz'-zoo})...And 1/2 Kikuyu tribal African banded mongoose from their dad, Makori Jais Mongoose (pronounced Ma-koo'-rye Jay'-es).
*Kanja (Moyo's next older brother) was born mentally challenged, but only to a moderate degree. Still, Kanja Jais Mongoose is loved by his family, friends.  
The Mongoose Family is depicted as living in a rural area near Northwestern Kenya, Africa, in West Pokot County (pronounced Paw-koot') of the Rift Valley Province.
Moyo is from a family that started out with a fairly low income, but not as poverty stricken as a Meerkat Family and others in Southern rural Angola had been...However, the family income would improve as time goes on...Because Makori Mongoose is from the more prosperous Kikuyu tribe (pronounced Kick-koo'-you), the village of Makori's family provided financial assistance to help Makori start out with bidding on delinquent units at storage facility auctions, then selling the contents at vendor's markets for a profit...Then later getting into going into the cities and get into investing and selling tax foreclosed properties, some of which having rent income...That assistance is reserved only for members of Kikuyu tribal families, whether they reside in or away from a village, and for no one else. However, there is a lifelong obligation that comes with accepting that assistance...A member of a Kikuyu tribal family who prospers as a result of receiving tribal assistance to start a business is expected to donate 5% to 17% of business earnings back into the tribe, collected quarterly throughout the year for a lifetime. The percentage of what is collected fluctuates with income level and profit margin being earned by the individual. Much of what is collected by the tribe is then in turn given to assist other tribal members who wish to go out into the "modern world" and become prosperous. It is an investment in both the individual tribal member and the tribe, thus why the Kikuyu Tribe and it's members prosper better than other tribes do.  
Even back during the time Moyo and Family had been below the middle class income level, they've still always enjoyed a standard of living considerably above that of the 3rd world.
The family home is fairly sizable, old, wood frame, with a slightly rusted tin roof, and the floors creek a little. The house is surrounded completely by porch, and what would be the attic is an upper story with gables...what some realtors would call "an old, white elephant house".  But the 100+ year old house is built of 19th to 20th century construction which is modern for the time it was built, with wooden walls, floors and roof structure...as oppose to the small, clay wall, dirt floor homes like are quite common throughout the local countryside.
BTW, Makori, with help from some of his relatives within the Kikuyu tribe, was able to successfully bid on that old house that a French marmot couple lost in a tax delinquency foreclosure auction...The lifelong gratuity reimbursement for receiving the money to bid on that house was not expected by the leader and elders of the tribal village, because that help came from only within Makori Mongoose's family.    
Over the years, floors in the bathroom, kitchen and parlor had gotten in pretty bad condition. Those three rooms were eventually re-floored with plywood and tiled.
The parlor floor is shown in the BB code tag below;

Walls in the parlor and living room have been wood paneled and stained dark mauve, the kitchen and two other rooms have been dry-walled, the bathroom walls have been ceramic tiled, and most of the rooms and the hallway still bare the original lath and plaster troweled stucco the house was built with.
The bathroom wall tile is shown in the BB code tag below;

The house was originally built in 1907 without electricity. In 1958, electrical service became available through a rural development program continued by the Kenyan government after the British relinquished occupation of the country...That was one year after the clay and gravel main highway was paved with asphalt blacktop.
What the Old Road was Like 100 Years Ago [Page 2] by moyomongoose
Highway in Kenya by moyomongoose

During that rural development program, there were many local animals and their families who were building homes that were more comfortable, although a few of them were a bit shack like with corrugated tin exteriors. The old thatch tribal huts they've always lived in were either abandoned, used as utility buildings or given to other of their relatives.
In the summer of 1960 (when Moyo was age 6) the house was wired for electricity. The wiring was installed on the outer surfaces of the walls and ceilings, under decorative wire guards, as was done with many buildings in those days that didn't originally have electricity.
Having electricity also made it possible to run a well pump so plumbing could be piped into the house, which was done in that same year with help from a rural development program grant awarded to the family...Since 1960, water no longer had to be carried in from the well by pails for drinking, cooking, bathing and toilet flushing (Of course, being animals with no clothing, there are no laundry needs except for blankets, towels and wash rags).

The family cars have always been old station wagons or old utility vehicles (not 'sport utility'). However, the cars the family has owned, although old, have not been in a condition to the extent of being ragged, rusted out and falling apart.
The car Moyo's family had when Moyo was born was a 1951 Standard Vanguard wagon like the one in the link below, except the Mongoose Family's car was right paw drive and being purchased used, did show some age.

These were some of the African pop hit songs of that 1950s - 1960 time era...Jean Bosco Mwenda was popular for a while there in Kenya in the 1950s;

...Coincidentally, "kuja hapa" is said at 0:30, 1:37 & 2:41...LOL.
In fact, a few times during the time Kanja, Moyo and Jomo were cubs, they would hear this song on the radio and hear those lyrics, "kuja hapa".
The cubs would ask Aluna, "Mamma! Deet Great Coozin Bahassa mek dat song?!".
The cubs had already heard of the time two generations ago, on Mom's side of the family, when their Grand Dad Nangwaya had flogged his Cousin Barasa with a piece of woody vine for calling Grand Ma Saura Binturong a kuja hapa.
Of course little Kanja would jump around with excitement, proclaiming, "Coozin Bahasa song! Coozin Bahasa song!"
Mamma would always assure her three youngest male cubs, "Coozin Bahasa hat nauthin' ta do weet writin' dat song".
