      Open a CDS account with a stockbroker then you can start transacting in all shares listed on the NSE including buying KCB Bank shares.

      Trading in ordinary shares on the stock market does not provide a fixed monthly income. You only get paid when the company whose shares you've acquired pays out dividends which is normally on an annual or semi-annual basis. If you want fixed payment, then you may want to look into preference shares of companies on the stock market. Otherwise, go to an investment bank to see their money market products such as fixed deposit, treasury bills and corporate bonds.
