Starting a business in Kenya requires one to have various important details covered. Before you start a business, you need to do your research. How will the business bring in money? After how long will the business pick up and start making profits? A research on the idea you hold and want to implement into a good successful business exposes one to know what to expect in the market, how the idea will be accepted by the customers, where put up the business for it to flourish better, the competition in the market, strategies to beat the competition, and all details you need to know on starting up a business.
Once you have done your research, for a business to be successful in Kenya, you will need to identify a source of capital. Sources of capital in Kenya are quite a lot. Taking up a loan from banks, finding an investor, borrowing money from friends and relatives, organizing groups/chamas to start a business together, applying the UWEZO funds, youth and women funds from the government, loans from other financial institutions like KWFT and many other places are some of the sources of capital to start businesses.
Small business enterprises (SME) are actually cropping up profitably in both rural and urban areas in Kenya. This means that, anyone can start up a business and become successful in the future. Apart from capital, you will need a source of labour and the necessary skills to make the business stand out. In cases of starting small, you will need to venture into a business where you can provide the necessary skills required. Understanding the technicality of the business is essential so as the tasks can be directed towards maximizing the profits of a business.
