In today’s post, we discuss some of the easiest ways to make 5,000 shillings per day in Kenya.

The rest of the gigs however are new ways to make 5,000 shillings in Kenya and may require you to put in more effort before you can start earning.
Below is a list of small business ideas, gigs, hustles, online jobs, and products you can sell to make 5,000 shillings in a day.
- Affiliate products.
- Physical products.
- Online courses.
- Academic writing.
- Multi-level marketing.
1. Affiliate products.
I am an affiliate marketer and not once not twice, not thrice but every day I earn more than 5,000 shillings promoting affiliate products on my social platforms and my websites.
Affiliate marketing is when you promote other people’s products or services in exchange for a commission for each successful sale.
While you will not begin and start making money immediately with affiliate marketing, it is a great way to start making 5,000 shillings consistently. Sometimes even for a lifetime.
Would you like to begin promoting affiliate products? Here are some products to start with.
2. Physical products.
Maybe you have a physical shop with physical products that aren’t selling.
Why not bring those products online?
You can make Ksh. 5,000 or more selling your products on online marketplaces like PigiaMe, Jiji, Facebook, Jumia… you name it.
The best part, most of these product listing sites do not ask for any fees or any upfront payment.
You can also use the new feature for product listing on WhatsApp business.
3. Start an eCommerce Store.
Sometimes not even mixing and selling on all those social platforms will work for you.
Should you find yourself in such a situation, consider taking the entire shop online.
With only Ksh. 10,000 you can create a clean WordPress eCommerce platform that accepts all payment methods.
Having a website will not only ensure that you get a wider reach and build a stronger online presence but also ensure that you increase your daily earnings.
Try to optimize your website for purchases and allocate funds for advertising if you want faster results.
Dropshipping also requires a website and as a drop shipper, you will sell various products from different sources to your clients without ever owning any inventory.
All you have to do is import pictures of unique easy-to-sell products from the manufacturer’s website to your website.
Adjust the pricing to cover your costs and to leave you a reasonable profit.
When someone buys that product, pay the markup to the manufacturer and give them the buyer’s address to ship directly.
You can use this method to sell one product that leaves you with Ksh. 5,000 profits or sell 1,000 products per day – each leaving you with 5/= profits.
5. Online Trading.
Online trading involves making a forecast on the future price of different assets and if the prediction is correct, you make money.
There are two different modes that you can choose to trade with. Forex or fixed-time trades.
The easiest and the one that’s popular among new traders is fixed-time trading.
In fixed-time trading, you get to earn up to 92% of your investment if your forecast is correct and you can begin trading with as little as $1.
If you use the links on this website to create your account and further fund that account, I will help you to earn Ksh. 5,000 per day.
You can also make Ksh. 5,000 by offering tuition services.
Ideally, Kenyan teachers charge an average of Ksh. 500 to Ksh. 2,000 for two hours to tutor students.
However, if you register on online tuition sites like GoGoKid, Voxy, VIPkid, and PrePly… to teach English, you can charge as much as $25 per hour.
This means you will only need to go for two hours to make Ksh. 5,000 in a day.
7. Sell Online Courses.
Online courses for just about anything can also make you 5,000 per day.
All you need to do is, come up with a course idea, package it, and sell it for your preferred price.
Here are some of the prices you can use and how many copies of your course you will need to sell to make Ksh. 5,000 per day.
- Charge 1-course Ksh. 5,000 to make Kshs 5,000
- Charge – Kshs 2,500 and you will need to sell at least 2 copies to make Kshs. 5000
- Cost your course at Kshs 5 and you will need to sell 1,000 licenses to make Ksh. 5,000 per day.
Whatever price you choose, if it is lower then you will need to work twice as hard to meet the target.
Transcription involves converting audio/video files into a document or text file.
As a transcription freelancer, you’ll be assigned work based on the amount of time you sign up for on your preferred site’s scheduler.
Some of the most popular transcription sites include: –
It is uncommon not to hear a dedicated transcriptionist make $1,495 or more in a month.
Meaning, they can easily make Ksh. 5,000 per day working from home.
9. Academic writing.
Now, this is not an easy one.
It is both an art and a science and you can easily make between $15 and $20 per page if you get a direct client.
Should you want to begin by working for someone else in Kenya though, then your payment will reduce to about Kshs. 500 per page.
Meaning, that you will only make Kshs. 5,000 per day if you can write 5 pages of approved academic works.

10. Online surveys.
Did you know that there are survey sites that can pay you as much as $25 just to do one healthcare or pharmaceutical survey?
The icing on the cake, you only get to work for 55 mins.
Meaning, it will only take 2 hours to make Ksh. 5,000 working on these survey sites.
Want to give it a try, head over to the Vindale research website to book your spot.
Other survey sites that you can also join to make money in Kenya include: – ySense, greenPanthera, GPTBee, SurveySavvy, Triaba, PaidViewPoint, VIVATIC, MOBROG, and Zen surveys.
11. Multi-level marketing.
Multilevel marketing (MLM) is a strategy some direct sales companies use to encourage existing distributors to recruit new distributors who are then paid a percentage of their recruits’ sales.
These companies are designed to make a profit for the owners/shareholders of the company and a few individual participants at the top levels of the MLM pyramid.
Meaning, you can still make money on other levels but you will only be able to make so much if you are lucky to be at the top of the chain.
If you ask me, you can make so much money with MLM and you can also lose so much money with MLM.
