Ten Best Part-Time Hustles to Start in Kenya

This article will show you the ten best side hustles that will help you earn more than just spending your spare time on them.

Each of these part-time jobs has been personally tested by me or someone I know, so you can trust that they pay well.

Transport Business

Transport business is one of the most profitable side hustles you can start with little to no startup costs.

All you need is a smartphone, good communication skills, and an app like Uber. Transport businesses are in high demand because they help people get rid of their old junk quickly and easily – I've made nearly Ksh. 100,000 selling my old stuff on Instagram, Jiji, and Facebook groups.

Buying and selling used items

Selling used things is a popular side activity for folks with a lot of spare time.

To make a lot of money with your used stuff, you'll need to discover the correct sites to sell them — the greatest alternatives are Instagram and Facebook groups.

Keep in mind that you'll need to do a lot of research on how to list your stuff, what sells best in your area, and which sites are worth joining before you begin.

Selling informational materials

One of the most profitable side hustles you can find online is selling instructional materials.

It takes a lot of time and money to create an information product like an e-book or a video course, but it's well worth it.

The advantage of information items is that once they're developed, you may sell them again and again without incurring extra costs.

Furthermore, online information of sale is quite scalable – you don't need to work full-time to create a decent living with this side hustle.

Teaching Swahili online

If you're a natural Swahili speaker, one of the most basic side hustles is teaching Swahili online.

You must either create a website or sign up for freelancing platforms like UpWork and apply for gigs.

Remember that you’ll have to do a ZOOM interview to qualify for the job once you land a contract.

Make money by reselling other people's items.

Selling other people's things on the internet is a terrific method to generate money. Keep in mind that you'll need some initial money to get started with this side hustle.

Furthermore, we recommend that you sign up for Shopify or Woocommerce (both are free) and list at least ten resellable products.

Work from home and sell your products online.

The most accessible side hustle is selling online from home.

The good news is that you don't need to sell tangible things to make money, so you can get started on this side hustle right away.


Tutoring CBC-based students is one of the most dependable part-time jobs in Kenya that you can do. There are a lot of people who earn a full-time living instructing teenagers online without ever having to meet them in person.

Remember that you'll need some experience before you can start coaching, so if you want to learn how to become an expert at something quickly, check out my site.


Dropshipping is one of the easiest side hustles to get started with; all you have to do is pick a drop shipper and start selling things on your website.

Remember that choosing the proper dropshippers will take time, so set aside at least a few weeks to investigate and test out all of your possibilities.

Selling physical products

One of the most popular side hustles is selling physical products online. All you have to do is find the right products and list them on Jiji or Facebook.


Freelancing is widely recognized as one of the easiest side projects to get started with. Simply create an account on UpWork or Fiverr and begin applying for assignments. If you want to earn a good rating from your clientele, make sure you have some experience!
