While studying to get a degree or diploma is the prime goal for a campus student, many of the campus students find ways of surviving in campus without depending on HELB loans or little pennies from their guardians. Social needs become demanding stirring them to venture into small businesses including:
Hawking fast foods in hostels
It is a common habit of a few campus students who have guts to hawk in the hostels. Those who find this primitive and fear their girlfriends won’t dare this. Common foods such as boiled eggs, avocados, juice, as well as clothing.
What are weekends meant for a campus guy without latest series-movies in the market? Perhaps the Sh50 from selling the free downloadable movies are a good income.
There are those campus computer wizards who can hack Virtual Private Networks (VPN) and sell bundles at a comrades price. Not everyone can do this!
Typing, printing, photocopying and other cyber services make the business boom around campus. The lazy bones who want assignments and projects proposals to get done with cash always visit these areas.
It is no strange nowadays to see campus guys manage grocery stalls around campus. In fact, they know it better than most stylish ladies who buy ready -made food.

Capturing the great moments of campus are part and parcel for the lovers of hikes and outings. Campus students are glued to photo shoots with their friends, lovers and relatives. Leave alone selfies, they want professional pics!
This is a thriving engagement for campus students, who need not to own a motorbike but just hiring for a whole day. This is easier to guys for they love riding and riding but at the end, have a profit.
Bars & pool tabling
The love for drinking demands readily available drinking sprees around campus. When HELB money rocks the accounts, the first thing is to enjoy drinks with friends! Establishing bars goes hand in hand with pool tables. Pool tabling is a game loved by drinkers!
Salons & Boutiques
If you want to have a good business, open a salon near campo. The ladies and equally to men, want to make their hair look nice. Some campus students see it cheap to turn their rooms into salons and boutiques. And they get a good number of customers!
There are those upcoming artistes who don’t have capital to produce a song. Young producers in campus get the opportunity to create beats, record a song then do online marketing. You know what, the songs trend even more than what those songs recorded in an established studio!
