To make Ksh 5,000 to Ksh 10,000 per day, do the following:

  • Become a blogger

There are many bloggers in Kenya making over Ksh5,000 per day—I can count more than 20. All you need is to create viral content that attract more than 700,000 monthly page views. I am one of the bloggers earning over Ksh 150,000 per month. As of 2015 I was earning Ksh200,000, the income has been rising steadily. I started my blog with a capital of Ksh2,000, it’s now worth millions.

There are thousands of jobs which pay more than Ksh150,000 per month. However, if your target is to earn Ksh150,000 per month after tax, your job must pay a gross salary of Ksh 250,000 and above.

Buy land and build rental houses. If you have 10 one-bedroom houses, you’ll not make less than Ksh 150,000 per month. But you need more than Ksh 10 million to build 10 houses.

  • Invest in shared and Unit Trust

Companies like Safaricom and KenGen will reward you handsomely if you buy their shares. I envy those who bought shared from Safaricom between 2007 and 2012, they are making good money every year.

You should also invest in Unit Trusts. But over Ksh10 million is needed in order to be assured of earning more than Ksh150,000 per month.

  • Do large scale farming

If you plant trees in more than 1 acre, you will sell them for more than Ksh 10 million in 10 years. If you plant tomatoes in more than 1 acre, you have to make over Ksh 500,000 in three months. Farming is a profitable venture which needs seriousness and commitment to achieve objectives.
