Rare and less flooded Business in Kenya



In Kenya it’s all about business, and when an entrepreneur comes with a new idea, others replicate, making it flooded. But there are businesses which are unique-you won’t find everyone doing it. The following is a list of those businesses.

Snail business

Only Rosemary Odinga can tell you how this business is profitable. The daughter of former Prime Minister Raila Odinga keeps snails and sells them to popular restaurants in Kenya.

If you didn’t know, the business earns her over Ksh200,000 per month.

This is clearly a rare business in Kenya, which you can venture in and make money.

If you are wondering who eats snails, here is a list of visitors who request for delicious meal:

Car Tinting

Car tinting is another business that is not flooded in Kenya, especially in small towns.

Since the government has not introduced a law to ban car tinting, you can consider starting the venture.

Software development

If you are good in software design and development, this is what you can do in Kenya and become a millionaire.

Apart from software design, you can specialize in developing downloadable games.

Grave digging company

I know you will laugh, but I can assure you the moment you register such a company in Kenya, you’ll smile all the way to the bank.

There is a business gap here.

Marriage investigator

Women and men in marriage would like to divorce upon realizing their partners are cheating. But legal cases often turn against the accuser if investigation is not bearing sufficient evidence. Your work as a marriage investigator will be to prove that indeed the individual is cheating by tracking them and collecting evidence.

This business is risky but it pays.

The case becomes sweet if you are dealing with a wealthy person.


Shylock business is popular in Nairobi, Mombasa and Kisumu,but not existing in small towns.

If you have some Ksh1 million, you can start loaning chamas and individuals in villages and make quick cash.

The best people to loan in small towns include teachers and farmers.
