There are businesses out there that are very lucrative but very few people know or bother about. It’s not that they do not know about the businesses really, but that they don’t see how lucrative these business ideas are.

Most people look down upon these businesses because they take them as tasks meant for the less educated, less civilized and the poor in society.

The fact is that these are businesses which if you purpose to undertake, you are bound to succeed.

  • Brick making business

This is the business path that is less taken by the elite in society as they continue moving up and down in search of white collar jobs. Instead of wasting precious time looking for an office job, why not venture into the business of making bricks and make money?

You do not need to own a brick-making machine. Use the traditional mode of brick-making that makes use of rectangular boxes specifically designed for bricks. Making one costs 300 shillings and to start, you need around three of them with each making three bricks at ago.

Hire two people who will do a job for you at a small fee, say for KES 300 per day and set a target for them, say, 1000 bricks per day.

The good thing about bricks is that you can either bake them or sell them unbaked. Currently, a baked brick costs between KSh. 10 to KSh.15 and if you make 30,000 bricks per month, you will be making between KSh. 300,000 and 450,000 shillings.

You don’t need to become an MP to make a lot of money. Get into the business of making bricks.

  • Chicken rearing business

Whenever the business of rearing chicken is mentioned, many people only think of exotic chicken and forget about the indigenous ones. But did you know that rearing indigenous chicken is more convenient, less costly and more profitable than rearing exotic ones?

Indigenous chicken, often referred to as traditional chicken have the following advantages as compared to the rest;

  • They require minimum supervision and do not need an enclosure for they grow best if given free range to roam and feed themselves.
  • They are cheap to maintain because they do not need frequent medication and special treatment to keep them healthy.
  • It is easy to find a market for them with both business people and fellow farmers usually ready to buy them.

During the festive season, for instance, a full grown indigenous cock goes for 1200 shillings while a hen goes for 800 shillings.

If you have 200 cocks for instance, you will make a total of 240,000 shillings and if you own other 200 hens, you will make an additional of 160000 shillings. Now you know what to do.
