5 Small Business Opportunities in Kenya's Home Improvement Industry

Everyone wants to live in a nice house in a nice place. However, not many people understand the whole process of building and maintaining a decent home. With so many construction projects taking place around Major cities in Kenya, it goes without saying that any small business idea in this industry is highly likely to flourish. Here are 5 such examples.

(1)Sell building plans online

If you know how to draw building plans then you can sell them in dozens online to people planning to build their homes.


Budget:Ksh200,000 – Ksh500,000


(2)Pest control services

Homes and offices will always suffer from one problem – pests. We’re talking about cockroaches, termites, rats etc. If you have the tools and know how to deal with rabbits then this can be good business.

Budget:Ksh500,000 – Ksh1,500,000

(3)Property management agency

All you need to do here is to market property to-let and property for-sale from different estates in the city. Also, you can talk to a few landlords to allow you to manage their property and tenants.
