Ken Githaiga’s journey into becoming one of the best forex traders in Kenya is a story of persistence and unending learning. This is a story that every aspiring forex trader can relate to.
From the moment that Ken left college in 2008, he had a nagging feeling that he didn’t want to end up in a 5-9 office job. His quest was to work and earn money online but he at first didn’t know what kind of work he could find online.
After many weeks of searching and consulting, Ken Githaiga heard of online forex trading and the opportunities it offered to make money online in Kenya.
Making money with online forex trading was particularly attractive to Ken as he learned that he didn’t have to spend too many hours on the computer as is with the case with other online jobs such as content writing.

What followed was a journey of learning, consulting, and trading on demo accounts.

In his mid-20s, Paul Mugenda is already a very successful forex trader and a mentor for so many aspiring beginners in Kenya. But like every other trader on this list, Mugenda was not always like this. It took many years of toiling and learning to turn him into one of the top forex traders in Kenya.
In fact, before Paul Mugenda ever became a profitable forex trader, he had started as a tea leaves hawker in the busy Githurai 45 bus terminus and later worked as an insurance sales person to several insurance companies in Kenya.
In 2014, a friend introduced Mugenda to online forex trading. He borrowed $300 as a starting capital, but unfortunately he lost all the money after he blew his trading account. It would take him many months to finally perfect his trading strategies and become profitable.
Currently, Paul prefers to trade binary options. He has made a name for himself in the industry and is considered by many as the best binary options trader in Kenya. His company Paris Fx not only trains on how to trade binary options but also offers trade signals to interested parties at one-time fee of $350.

5. Sylvia Muchai – Most Successful Female Forex Trade in Kenya
Preferred Forex Broker: Scope Markets
Started Trading: 2014
Sylvia Muchai is the real definition of pushing boundaries, and it is quite impossible to not admire her drive and charisma.
Her forex trading journey began as soon as she graduated from Kenyatta University with a bachelors degree in Finance. It was a journey, however, that was paved with peril. To start with, she blew her first $250 trading account barely 5 days after opening it. But that did not dampen her hopes of becoming a millionaire forex trader.
Day after day, for two straight years, Sylvia sought information of how to become a successful forex trader in Kenya. She read numerous trading books, devoured the BabyPips trading ecourse, opened numerous demo accounts, and attended trading seminars both online and offline.
During her initial trading years, Sylvia faced discouragement from forex trading mentors who would ask for an arm and a leg to teach her how to trade. The fees quoted would go to the upwards of $2,500. Even if she really wanted to learn how to trade, there was no way this fee was forthcoming. It was simply too much.
