Don't Buy Quails in Kenya Before You Get Answers To These 5 Questions

More and more people are venturing into the quail business due to the hype and frenzy in the country currently. Many are risking their hard-earned money without even doing enough market research. I had gone to visit my brother in Kamulu over the weekend and I heard him talk about the "magic of the quail business." He told me that he knew of somebody whose quail business was doing quite well and that he was also considering to invest in them. Of course, I'm not for that idea.

I’ve come to think of it this way - - - have you ever heard the story of Monkeys business? Well it goes like this…

Once upon a time in a village, a sharp man appeared from nowhere and announced to the innocent villagers that he would buy monkeys for KSH 300 each.

The villagers, seeing there were lots monkeys, went to the forest and started hunting them down. The “good man” bought thousands at KSH 300 and as monkey supply started to fall, the poor villagers gave up their effort.

The buyer further announced that he would buy each monkey at KSH 600. This renewed the hopes of the backward villagers so they started catching the few remaining monkeys again. Soon the monkey supply diminished further and the locals went back to their farms in peace.

The offer later grew to KSH 750 each but the supply of monkeys diminished that it was an effort to even see a monkey jumping up and about.

The sharp business-man now announced that he’d buy every available monkey at KSH 1000! However, his very able assistant would handle the business on his behalf since he had to go back to the city for some important business.

In the absence of the shrewd business-man, the assistant called the villagers and told  them"Look at all these monkeys in the big box that the man has collected. I’ll sell them to you at KSH 750 and when the businessman returns from the city, you sell them to him for KSH 1000 each. Sounds like a good deal…

The villagers gathered all their savings in one basket and bought all the monkeys each for KSH 750. To them this was a quick strategy to make KSH 250 for each monkey. Unfortunately, before they could know it, the assistant was gone and the businessman was nowhere to be seen, only noisy monkeys everywhere!
