How to Invest Money in Kenya:sh 50k,100k,200k,500k and 1 million


There is nothing hard as far as investment is concerned. Many people get confused once they get surplus money which needs to be invested, I was there too.

Personal finance is a topic which needs to be discussed in length, not just in towns but also in villages where people occasionally receive tea bonus or a boom from sales proceeds and exhaust the money within a short time without considering how to multiply it.

Few years ago, there was a lady who won Sh 5 million and a double cabin vehicle in a competition. I clearly remember how the lady was excited when she received the cash, flanked with her poor husband and family members.

Few days later, she chased her husband away after getting advice from family members. The poor lady ate all the Sh5 million in 2 years, she even sold the vehicle and spent the money on luxuries. Her painful story was highlighted on our dailies and got the attention of many Kenyans.

These cases are very common especially when an individual gets huge amount of money. The entire community will try to befriend you in order to get a share and once you exhaust the money, you see them disappearing one by one.

If you have Ksh 50,000,100,000,200,000,500,000 or 1, 000, 000, how will you invest the money?

1. Put in a fixed deposit account
If you find that you have say Ksh 1 million lump sum and you aren’t sure how to invest the money, you should first open a fixed deposit account and put all the money there as you think on the best business venture.
Fixed deposit account will enable you earn small interest as well as prevent you from careless spending.

2. Buy a piece of land
So many people are successful in Kenya because they made this decision. Buying a piece of land is the best decision you can make when you have some small amount to spend. The best thing with land is that it doesn’t depreciate. If today you buy a piece of land in Kajiado for Ksh50, 000, you are likely to sell it at Ksh 1 million in three years’ time.

3. Invest in government bonds
Kenyan government usually issue bonds to finance its projects. This is a golden opportunity to grasp and make a fortune out of it.
