The best thing to know in Kenya is how to make quick money in Kenya especially if you’re a youth.
I know and I can’t pretend to say that many Nairobi residents use dubious means to make quick money, including pick pocketing, but there are few people who have mastered the art of spotting opportunities and making use of them the earliest time possible. If you are wondering what this people do, here is how they make quick cash.
Selling umbrellas during rainy season
Nairobi residents especially women hate rains. When they see dark clouds their hearts start beating fast as they seek nearest place to hide. During this time they are ready to buy any kind of umbrella, and as an entrepreneur you can sell an umbrella which you bought Ksh 50 at Ksh300, which is quick cash.
Doing house cleaning during weekends
Many Nairobians are lazy, even cleaning their homes is an issue. If you are business minded just start your own cleaning company and look for those mamas to do the cleaning as you pocket lion’s share.
Selling Kitchen utensils in offices and streets
Most people always think of selling mitumba, clothes and shoes but they are not interested in selling kitchen utensils. Well, in Nairobi, even if you are full time employee, you can do this business and get easy money.
