Nigeria has quite a lot of stay at home parents and youths who are under-employed. These groups of people can still become an entrepreneur if you so desire, and want to make some decent legit money. This is the year where every Nigerians must embrace entrepreneurship. However, some people might be thinking how do I start a business when I don’t have money or space to do that. Well, below we have listed some business opportunities you can consider as a stay at home mum or under-employed youth with little or no money.
- Child care: we are a country of over 180million people, and children constitute a lot of this population. Nigerians are known hustlers who run from pillar to post every day in search of means for their daily bread. As a stay at home person, you can offer child care services to children of parents who live in your neighborhood. Start small, with kids of family members and friends, and expand gradually. Before you know it, you would be making cool cash from this lucrative venture. All you need is a safe place for the kids (same as where you stay) and a passion for kids.
- Catering: Catering can be a good business for people with lots of free time who have talent for cooking. You don’t need to have a restaurant but can supply your service for those planning parties, events and the likes. You can easily cook where you are and supply where needed. All you need is an opportunity to cook for a group, say your cultural organisation, church, mosque, and you are off to great start if they appreciate your food.
- Reselling products: There are many ways you can source goods relatively cheaper than those who don’t have enough to search and bargain. You may get cheaper goods from the various marketing campaigns, clearance sales, etc. You can then resell these products at a profit in conventional markets or online via your wesbsite.
- Freelance Writing: Every one aspires to be a blogger, and blogs require powerful content. This has created a market for content developer. If you can write, I assure you that you can make money selling your articles to various in Nigeria and outside Nigeria. What are you waiting for, dust of your writing skills and decide which subject you want to focus on, and start writing. Since I started blogging a few years ago, I have seen the freelance market explode. There is a huge demand for content and so there are a lot of ways to make money writing it.
