You can go to the nearby market, buy clothes and sell to your neighbours. Mitumba clothes are among the best ones to sell because they are cheap and easily available.

  • Rent out your PlayStation, skating shoes and toys

Some of your friends may not have PlayStations, skating shoes and toys to play with. If you have these items, you can demand that your neigbours acquire them from you at a fee. PlayStation is one of the tools you should have in your house because it’s in high demand.

  • Participate in paid events

There are events which you can participate and get paid. Always check where such events happen and participate. You can even form a group where you practice dancing and get invited to parties and get paid.

  • Offer cheap labour

During holidays, you can look for work within your village and get paid. For instance, if there is someone who need a gardener, you can offer yourself for the services.

  • Buy and sell products in school

You can buy products like biscuits and sell them when other students don’t have the same.
