10 Business Ideas That Can Sail Through 2021

By Juma / Published January 19, 2021 | 8:45 am




The year 2021 just kicked off. It comes after a tough 2020 that hit the world with a pandemic that is still sweeping across the world. What many people with some little cash are thinking about right now is how to invest and sail through not seemingly friendly 2021.

Here are some 10 business ideas to help you out:

Wines and spirits shop

There is no doubt there are thousands of wines and spirits in Nairobi but there is never a shortage of buyers. This is one of the most lucrative businesses that can outlive pandemics. The rate of alcohol being sold during the pandemic rose by 110 percent.

Starting a salon

There are thousands of Salons in Kenya and Nairobi in particular. But starting one doesn’t mean you will go without customers. By the way, a salon is about trust and how you treat your customers. You will never go home without cash. Think about it.

Setting up a shop

Micro-retailers are the real engines of buying and selling in Kenya. Forget about giants in the retail sector. The real drivers of the economy and enablers of financial inclusion in rural areas are shopkeepers. Set up a shop and stock it up with all the essentials.

Setting up an affordable massage parlor for men in Nairobi.

Currently, this is a hotcake business in Nairobi. Makeshift massage rooms are making a killing within the city. Set up your, make it presentable, and watch men streaming in. The common price is 1,500 shillings for a full body massage.

Starting a PR firm

There is no doubt there are many reputable and big PR firms in Kenya, especially Nairobi but who said there is a shortage of clients? Brands in Kenya are increasingly seeking PR services, especially in this digital era. Just have a language to convince.

Starting a tendering business

I just realized that there are people in Nairobi willing to part with thousands of shillings to have others fill tenders for them. Have a business that bids & fills tender forms on behave of people & companies. You will be surprised by how much cash you will get.

Car hiring business

Just start a car hire. The current generation is so obsessed with cars that they are willing to hire just to show off that they can also move around in cars. Car hire is a booming business in this city. Some people are hiring cars just to go and eat fish.

Start a travel agency

It looks like Covid-19 has made Kenyans realize that life is short. People are traveling, especially to the coast as if there is no tomorrow. They are looking for agencies that can give them affordable deals. You must also cultivate trust with your customers.

Rear and sell chicken

If you still think farming doesn’t pay, then you need to have your head checked. Have you tried rearing a crossbreed of Kuku Kienyeji and Kizungu? People are dying for them and they fetch good money given that they mature between 4 and 6 months.

Sell fruits

Just like that. People have realized that fruits have the power to boost their immunity and now everyone is out there hunting for fruits to buy. Be that guy where they will always find any kind of fruit at affordable prices.
