3. Day Care/ School

When my neighbor started her daycare, it was just one of those things you try out to see if it can work. Six months down the line, what started as a side hustle has turned out to be her main hustle.

How may you ask? All she needed was a spare room. At that time she had one in her home and before she knew it, parents who were too busy at work were leaving their kids with her.

This is one of the lucrative businesses that people are yet to embrace not knowing that this business only requires a starting capital of about 10K.

You can rent out a small room for about 3K depending on the location and you are good to go.

4. Car wash business

This is one of the booming businesses in Kenya right now. You don’t require much to start a cash wash, just an area with water supply.

People would rather pay someone to wash their cars than do it themselves. If you charge 200 shillings per car, you can manage to clean 100 cars per day again depending on where you are located. That is 20K per day.

Get a dedicated staff and you could be making around 400K in a month. Get over the mentality that car washing is for the lowly and uneducated people in the society, people are buying plots just from that business alone.

6. Coffee Shop

Have you ever wondered how coffee shops like Java started? Well, Java, for instance, started as a small coffee room with only two waiters. Through quality service and convenience, the owner was able to grow his capital within a year from 35K to 1 million.

As I said business is all about taking risks. With dedication and great service to your clients, it doesn’t matter how much capital you started your venture with.
