One of the most profitable businesses in Kenya is PlayStation. Profits earned depend on location, number of customers and the total number of PlayStations.One of my friends set up a PlayStation in Nairobi for Ksh 400,000 and his daily profits were Ksh 5,000 to Ksh20,000.In a month, he was earning Ksh70,000 to Ksh300,000.Another one runs this business in Mombasa and makes Ksh90,000 to Ksh150,000 monthly.
PlayStations are most profitable when schools are closed. This is because most of the clients are students. During this time, you’ll make up to Ksh500, 000 per month if the number of PlayStations are many.
The profits earned per month based on location are as follows:
Nairobi=Ksh 100,000 to Ksh500,000
Mombasa=Ksh50, 000 to Ksh300,000
Kisumu=Ksh 70,000 to Ksh200,000
Nakuru=Ksh50, 000 to Ksh200,000
Eldoret=Ksh50, 000 to Ksh 150,000
Kisii=Ksh 30,000 to Ksh150,000
To set up a PlayStation business, you need a capital of Ksh 150,000 and above. On average, Ksh300,000 is ideal.
One of the challenges you’ll face is insecurity. People will try to steal the PlayStations and sell to others, the demand is high. You will also be harassed by the police.If you manage to contain the two challenges, then you’ll make a lot of profits.
In your building, always install CCTV.You should also hire someone you can trust,someone who can’t collude with robbers.
