Now that you have an idea of how to make Kshs 5,000 in a day, it is your turn to go and hustle. Find a product or service that you can offer to a particular number of people for a given profit margin and you will have solved your problem.


Example: The Hard Way!

Identify a Problem: People want to have quick money through sports betting (Via Sportpesa, Bet in, Betika…).

Solution: Photocopy the daily games page from the daily newspapers (it will cost you about Kshs 3 per copy) in bulk – about 500 copies.

Identify a market: There are thousands of people that get off at the Nairobi Railway Station every morning going to work. Most of them buy copies with daily sports games in the city center. Target them by selling the copies just after the exit from the railway station. Sell the printout at Kshs 15. If you still have some more remaining printouts stand at the railway’s bridge where more people pass by and offer your products.

Value: The printout (one side) for one betting company (e.g. Sportspesa) sells at Kshs 10. Print the paper with odds on both sides of the paper (Two companies) and sell it at Kshs 15.

With less than the 500 copies, you will have made Kshs 5,000.

There are definitely other easier ways but hey, nobody said it would be easy!

Good luck!
