The worst thing about being a youth is probably when you are broke. At that time you need money but you do not have an income stream.
The latter, you result in curvy ways of extorting money from parents and friends. It is true that there are no jobs out there, but it is the high time our youths started being creative and aggressive. Young people should start seeing themselves as job creators rather than job seekers.
As a matter of fact, what sets the western world aside from us is how their economy works. Theirs is based on the knowledge economy where young people create things based on their skills and sell them. Our youths, on the other hand, are dependent on employment as their sole savior. As such, it is time for young people to embrace blue collar jobs instead of waiting to land a career in an office. Here are some of the business opportunities in Kenya for youths.

There is a major deficit in the cleaning sector where the providers of cleaning services are way low than the clients hence venturing into the cleaning sector either commercial or residential cleaning. This one requires you to work in groups of around 5 to 10 and also for a start the money needed to buying cleaning equipment cannot be raised by one person hence a group will work perfectly here.
Open a Gaming Centre
Many Kenyans are gamers. Take a visit to any gaming center and you will realize that they are always full and sometimes fully booked. Youths can save and buy gaming appliances, look for a strategic location and set up a gaming center. Campus students like gaming and setting a play station outside the campus gate will be a just perfect catch.
Investing In The Stock Market
Look, investing in The Nairobi Securities Exchange (NSE) isn’t for the rich and mighty in Kenya. There are shares as cheap as sh300 which you can buy in bulk and sit back and watch as your money grows though this is not a guarantee as the economy is unstable nowadays on a light note; the stock market is one of the best investment opportunities.
Venturing Into Agriculture

Youths venturing into agriculture can go further into green housing as they allow one to farm all year round despite the weather, with rewarding returns.

All you need is a spacious room with a collection of toys for kids.
