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.
