Personal highlights

  1. Toi Market: large second-hand clothing and food market between Kilimani and Kibera
  2. Supply Chain: buying goods very cheap in Gikomba and selling with a huge margin
  3. Bargaining: with a margin of about 50%, hustling and bargaining is absolutely mandatory
  4. Shopping: you can find literally everything, in every quality - a paradise for bargain hunter
  5. Sellers: everybody is very friendly, but also everybody wants to sell something
