Kitale is an agricultural town in northern Rift Valley Kenya and is also considered one of the baskets of the country.

Ranging from the rich agricultural lands to small businesses that have thrived well in the region, Kitale has a lot of potential economic opportunities that one can tap into.

  1. Maize farming

Do you have a farm in Kitale? Well, why not start maize framing before the year 2022 ends?

Kitale is one of the most fertile regions in Kenya, producing approximately 40 percent of maize consumed in the country.

On an annual basis, Kitale produces an average of over 5 million bags of maize.

The region has a large area put under agriculture and is always supported by the National government through the ministry of agriculture.

Even if you don’t own land here, you can still consider leasing for an agreed period at a cheaper cost compared to other regions across the country.

  1. A cereal Kiosk

Most cereal retailers seek wholesale maize from Transzoia county. It will therefore be wise to put up a cereal kiosk in Kitale.

You can stock different cereals such as maize, beans, groundnuts, millet, sorghum, etc., which you can even sell to the National Cereals and Produce Board, milers, and schools among others.

Ensure you get fresh produce direct from the farm.

  1. Posho Mill

As it goes, Kitale is home to thousands of Luhya. This means at least one posho meal per two meters walk is a big save for the ingoho and ugali people.

The locals would rather grind their flour than buy packed one which they consider too light for a strong organism. The availability of maize makes the business ideal, easy and viable

You can either start a diesel-powered or an electric-powered miller.

  1. Seedling Business

The seedling business is a boomer in Kitale. Many grocers sell vegetable seedlings, fruit seedlings, and other tree seedlings on the street.

Assuming you spend 500 shillings on seeds, you might end up getting 5000 shillings for the pack if you sell each at ten shillings after three or four weeks.

  1. Welding Farm Equipment business

Kitale being an agricultural town, starting a welding business for farm tools would be a great idea; especially since most new farm tools are expensive to acquire and costly to maintain.

You can make and mend Fork Jembes, Jembes, Spades, Pangas, wheelbarrows, Jikos, Rakes, and plow, among other important farm tools.

  1. Shoe Shining Business

The show shining business offers good monetary value in the long run in Kitale. You can earn between 300 to 500 shillings in a day. Moreover, you might also be lucky to repair the customer’s shoes at an additional cost.

On a good day, you can be able to get almost 20 customers, the trick is to retain them

Starting this business will, however, require you to have a strategic location for your stall, seats and all the requirements needed.

  1. Refill Perfume Business

There is high demand for scented perfume in Kitale town. This might be due to the cold and water!

You can either go for the packed and branded option or the refilling option. For the packed and branded option, you can source perfume bottles locally and then look for a good designer perfume wholesaler for your desired labels.

Meanwhile, for refilling options, the clients who have their own perfume bottles bring them along for refilling.

  1. Deliver Grocery

This is also one investment opportunity you can begin easily in Kitale because it does not cost a lot.

You can take orders from your clients in advance and prepare and pack your grocery ready for cooking. You can consider engaging with local supermarkets such as Khetias to also supply them with their fresh groceries.

So, if you are in Kitale, don’t just sit back at home complaining that there are no jobs. As you can see there are various business ideas you can start with close to no cash. Try them out today!
