Kuto was born in a small village in Slovakia. His parents were poor, but they loved him very much. When Kuto was five years old, his father died. His mother did her best to care for him, but she could not afford to send him to school. So Kuto had to work hard to earn money for his family.
When Kuto was 10 years old, he met a man named Ján who became his friend. Ján taught Kuto how to read and write. He also showed him how to make money by selling goods in the marketplaces of towns and cities. With Ján’s help, Kuto soon became a successful businessman.
When Kuto was 15 years old, he met a girl named Zuzana and fell in love with her. Zuzana came from a wealthy family, so their relationship was not easy at first. But eventually her parents accepted him and they got married when he was 18 years old.”
