Campus life can sometimes be unbearable more so when you are broke. If you borrow some pocket money from your parent she or he will send you about ksh 1,000 and expect it to last a whole month. What is ksh.1000 and you need to buy a smartphone that can help you do your research online when given take away CATs . To be fair it is boring to start looking for a particular book in the library. Chances are you might not get the book and the lecturer does not care.
Don’t blame your parents more so if you know very well that they did not go to campus. Our parents do not understand how expensive life is in campus. Here are some jobs that can help you survive in campus.
I know most campus don’t allow doing business in campus premises but you can go and rent some double room outside campus where you can buy some goods in bulky and use your room as the store. You can then supply the goods to campus students in their rooms. Something like sugar, rice and eggs sell well. Your campus Facebook pages and groups can be a good avenue of marketing your product or business.
Doing some research or academic writing jobs
Academic writing entails doing some research writing online and then submitting it to the person who has ordered for the paper (example of an academic paper is here SAMPLE RESEARCH PAPER ). The research is similar to the one that you do in campus but this has strict rules. You must be aware of all academic writing styles (APA, MLA, HARVARD) and plagiarism rules. Here at kenyayote we also offer academic writing jobs to students at ksh. 200 per page written. Be prepared to do several revisions for your work to be approved.

My friend Wasisa also reminds me that doing some photocopy business also earns a lot of money and it is an effortless business. What you need is a laptop or computer and printing machine.
