2. Movie Shop Business

You only need a computer and buy some latest movies in town and duplicate them, this is the kind of business you have heard of for some time now.

The best part is that you do it in your estates and villages, and your neighbours and friends are your customers. The truth is you will need around Ksh. 50, 000, and more for a profitable business of this nature to run smoothly.

3. Salon and Kinyozi Business

I recently talked to my cousin about starting a business. I was surprised when she mentioned starting a salon in her neighbourhood, she works for the government, yes, but she is seeking to start her own business, and a salon is her choice. Well, this is common to many who want to make that extra coin supplement their salaries.

Salons and Kinyozi business do well in the popular neighbourhoods of Nairobi, make it look executive, and you are off to go. Some Kinyozis have employed beautiful women who massage the bald heads after the shave, this does the trick, and customers flow in well.

4. Wines and Spirits Business

I did not say that Kenya is a drinking nation, don’t tell that to anyone, but recently there has been an increase in the number of (let me call them Legal Changaa Dens) small pubs with the labels Wines and Spirits. Wines and Spirits is one of the lucrative businesses around the estates.

If you have been thinking about starting a pub or bar, but you hate the loud and the lewd behaviour of drunkards, then this is the kind of business you may think of st No one is allowed to drink at your premises, sell, and leave.

The obstacles in this kind of business are the right side of it as laws regarding alcohol are becoming stiffer and stiffer, and this has led to some of the ‘changaa dens’ to close and not profit the business owner.

5. Taxi Business

Technology has done wonders for Kenyans, and now, with the likes of Uber and Little cab, Taxi is one of the booming businesses in Kenya.

Anyone can do it, and with about 500K, you can get a car and sign up with these companies to start making money in  Kenya.

6. Goods Delivery

More and more Kenyans buy goods online, and there are plenty of shops online selling products. If you own a motorcycle or even an old car, you can sign up in any one of these sites to be their delivery guy.

You only need a valid driving license, a motorcycle carrier, and ethical conduct to get you started.

7. Beauty Workstation

The cosmetic industry is an ever-growing day in day out. This type of business doesn’t have seasons but goes with market trends in the fashion industry. Products are only affected by new entrants into the market that proves superior to the ones on the shelf.

8. Car Wash Business.

The car wash business goes hand in hand with other types of marketing. What I am trying to say here is that the booming of a car wash business is best suited to its geographical location.

You may want to start this type of business in places where there are other businesses. Such locations include; the entertainment joints, near the market, near mechanics, close to the malls, etc. People love to get their cars clean while engaging in other activities.
