Below you can find one of the possible ready business ideas for Nigeria. Some of the other include getting a chicken farm or a goat farm and selling food. You may also start a small retail business in Lagos or in some other part in Nigeria. Some people bake wedding or fancy cakes and sell them. It is an opportunity to start small and grow your business gradually. Working from home is the best option for a small enterprise. This way you reduce the risks and cut down your expenditures.

With the stated amount of money you can start an online business. For instance, you can go into blogging or engage in an affiliate marketing program. You can also start a small scale business selling street food or do minor retails.

If you are handy with things you can go into constructions and buy your equipment. Then you can take building jobs from customers directly instead of getting them through your employer or a firm. READ ALSO https://ask.naij.com/business/most-lucrative-business-in-nigeria-5-top-ideas-i23407.html to get more ideas and to know your options. This amount of money is sufficient to start small and grow your business from there.

No, you dont need as much as two hundred thousand naira at all to start an sms business in nigeria. All you need is a good sms platform that works and of course, some money but, less than the amount you mentioned you mentioned

For me, i believe 200k can actually start a good business only if you know the right business to do at the right time. for this amount, u dont really need a shop because the shop will take all the money. you can start a clothing business as a supplier. just buy the cloths, sale to those that also sale, I call it whole sale, at the same time, you also do some retel by carrying it to offices like companies and banks. there are other busineses i can always link you up, can alwaysreach me on exculentus@gmail.com

yes with just N25, 000, you can start making really cool income selling simple information to desperate Nigerians who wants you to help them. and to tell you truth if you get the foundational steps on how to run this information marketing business, your N25, 000 will yield good profits sometimes up to N200, 000 or more (and most times less if you dont do it right)

bottom line...

So many people keep complaining about how bad the Nigerian goverment is for not creating enough Jobs for the teeming youths leaving the universities.

in fact i almost shed tears when i read in a magazine that 96,000 Nigerians tured up for an interview in an organization with just 15 vacancies... and the people surrounded the builing hoping to be the lucky one to get employed.

hmmm...

very pathetic.

of course i agree that the Nigerian government has not really done well, but just to let you know, 53% of the population who are employed in the U.S.A are being employed by individuals who own small, and big businesses without the government help.

you can create jobs... and employ other people to work for you.

and believe it or not the best way to really start on your journey to have massive cash in your bank account is by selling. yes selling.

what do you sell?

the answer is something very valuable that is needed by desperate people with cash in hand. you see, so many Nigerians are faced with many needs, problems, wants etc.

and if you can provide valuable solutions to Nigerians who are faced with needs, problems, wants etc, then you can be sure of smiling to the bank always.

solutions are being provided every single day in the world. and in Nigeria, great people like Mike Adenuga provide Nigerians the simple means of communicating with their loved ones..

Aliko Dnagote has a mega business empire now because he is simply providing Nigerians with their basic needs like food etc

Complete sports provides Nigerians with the interesting things going on in the world of sports... and other businesses like that.

you too can do the same... but i want to show you my way.

Now for some Nigerians, the best way to provide solutions is by doing it in informational format like ebooks, manuals, books, reports, Cds, DVDs, Seminars etc... and believe it or not, smart Nigerians who are also 'jobless' are making millions per year just doing this.

and this is the solution approach format i want you to start working on. and the only thing you need is the foundation of how this works, the systems to make it work for you, with practical dedication on your side, you will definitely see a change in your finances.

i have put a master plan i have used over time to smile to the bank, and i want to give you this masterplan for free. now before you start thinking that this is just another nonsense crap, here's what you'll get from my free masterplan;

== you will discover how to identify a hungry audience deperate with passion for your informational solution with cash in hand to pay you (getting this right is like already having money in your bank account literally) ...

== i will also expose to you in simple steps how to create HOT sizzling information product for the hungry and desperate audience for less thank nothing...

== you will also discover how to 'position' your solution in widely read and targeted mediums and attract hungry customers like crazy...

== you will be able to create and use simple communicative marketing system to market and sell your information product.

== you also discover how to easily make your first N50, 000 in just 30 days or less using a simple targeted numbers approach (this is not get-rich-quick, but knowing how to do this will put N50, 000 in your bank account by using this system).

== you will also learn how to create simple killer messages to sell your information product to crazy hungry buyers...

and lots more...

interested to get this report? all you need to do NOW in order to get this report is to email your name PLUS your email address PLUS your phone number PLUS email subject 'Simple Cash MasterPlan' to cashbuilderinfo@gmail.com.

i will send you the report.

Note; it is high time you stopped looking for 'Magic System' to making money. it does not exist.

if you go through this report and you don't begin to see some changes in your finances, in all seriousness, you need to be prayed for. a very serious prayer at that... and i can help if you need me... at least i know some radical men who can do the job.

i want to see you at the top.

thanks for reading.

P.S. this is only available to people who are smart enough to invest in themselves, and understands the benefits in investing in their education. if you are a freebie seeker, this is not for you.

A lot depends on what you term to be good business. I started my book retail biz last month with just 4k (i mean four thousand naira) and today i've had a turnover of about 40k (in just one month). I do it parttime cos i have a regular job. As small as it appears, i consider it an impressive start. I realise there are people like me who love books but due to their busy work schedule, they find it difficult to go to bookshops. I source for books of popular authors with interesting titles and take to them during lunch hour(thanks to amazon). The prices are a bit lower than bookshop prices as i do not pay rent. U sell more if u can give concise and interesting description of d content of d books (u need a sharp mouth and a smiling face). I also gave out a free e-book to all customers so i have their email addresses and can inform them of my new collections without going to them. This is just testing d waters. I intend to expand my customer base. Money is important but isn't all there is to starting a biz. U need to identify a need and fill it.

hi,

Cattle business is very lucrative. If you are in Lagos you can make up to 20% monthly. It is not seasonal though price may vary from time to time. Cows are very useful in diverse ways apart from being a primary source of protein. All the extracts are useful. You can up your profit by butchering ie slaughtering and dressing the cows for the market. This can double your margin.

TYPICAL BUTHERS’ DAILY SALES RECORDS

CAPITAL: N150,000

EXPENDITURE:

COST OF A 200 Kg COW – 105,000

LADA (ROYALTY) - 2000

LEVIES – 2500

LABOR - 3000

MISCELLANEOUS – 2000

TOTAL: 115,500

SALES:

HEAD – 7000

SKIN – 5000

INNARDS – 13000

EJA (REMNANTS) – N2500

GIZARD – N300

TAIL – N2000

joystick (FOR MALE) – N350

MUSCLE – N500

BONES – N6000

BEEF @ N600 PER Kg, ASSUMING BEEF IS 140 Kg – N84, 000

TOTAL: N120,650

This is a based on killing just one cow.

@ Fadekemi

The fastest profit making business you can invest N200,000 into is the bulk recharge card sale, you don't need a big shop,a kiosk or small space sharing with someone who already has a shop will do, you don't need electricity aswell. It sells fast, we all know how telecomm is making money in naija today, just try to locate a distributor and buy in bulk and you sell to the local retailers making calls by the road side, you might not be making profits more that N10, N20, N50 depending on the value of the recharge card, but's fast and constant. If you do this for just three months am sure you will still have your N200,000 intact and yet a fat profit. I know a lady in my area that does the same , she left her job as a factory worker supervisor and went into just road side recharge card selling and call centre, she said she buys N40,000 card daily and it's profitable. So if you can sell in bulk to people like her, you could even go the extra mile to deliver to them at their point of sale and at the same time you could also get a space by the roadside where you put someone you trust, to sell to consumers and also make phone calls while you sell to retailers. I bet your N200,000 will be more than enough to do this. In Nigeria today you need a stable income to meet your daily needs, if you invest in equity or stocks you might go hungry before it matures.

@sbucareer

I can advise you on how to invest your 10,000 pounds in IT biz in the UK, that money might sound big but when it gets to Naija you will then see there are lots of challenges here that might stop your biz from moving forward, you might run out of patience or be frustrated especially when you are not in the system.

Quote from Kelvin

Yea of course, maybe it can assist you in selling pure water in a show glass

Alright am just kidding. Well it all depends on the kind of business you would like to start up and where you would like to set it up. There are various consultants in town, Contact any of them for professional information

Kelvin,

You would be surprised what kind of daily income you can make by 'selling pure water in a show glass.' Ok, forget about the show glass, think of a cooler. The other day, I was at my barber's and the female barber who assists the owner of the salon had a cooler of water by the side. As we talked, she made me realise that she could do with a bigger cooler as the demand was so very high. How much was the bigger cooler? N2,000 or so. I gave her half of it. Two weeks later, she had bought a bigger cooler and from the look of things she indeed needed another bigger cooler. I didn't ask how much she made in a day, but, as it were the demand was the most important thing to her: it was high. Just find a need and fill it. And, be not ashamed. Like an unemployed cousin-in-law of mine who I had asked one day what her passion was? When she told me she could weave, I told her she could start a 'dial-a-weave' business. I was even ready to throw in the seed capital to do a classified and some flyers (all these couldn't have cost me more than N10,000). All she needed to do was put her number in the advert, requesting for ladies who needed home service to call and book for the service. To take it further, she could get a list of good weavers whom she could call at the shortest notice to go and weave for the ladies. (And, believe me there are quite a number of ladies who would rather have the weavers come to their homes. For a little premium. Well, what did my cousin-in-law do? She listened to my 'business plan' which, if you must know, came by some impulse, and said she would get back to me. She never did.

Must it be in IT? why not clothing line because right now,I'm developing a business plan I would need some one who'll be interested in equity holdings in it .In the long run we expect to sell the products in England but it would make sizeable chunks in Naija too especially since the distribution will be in top shops around Nigeria.

LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK WE'LL TALK IN DETAILS!I intend to start with good management team.Less on overhads and more on production

One of the thing you can do is be a service provider to Banks and Corporate institute; Database management or Engineering. Get a bunch of guys that are good in IT and their credentials on a website, publicised the site to potential clients and get some relationship with them. Nigerians are always looking to updates in IT. Have your professional IT guys most in Lagos, then Abuja and Port.

Another thing you can do is help us in the movie industry. The Media/Movie Technology in Nigeria lack the hand of a professional touch. You can open a studio just for pro-production. Which will entails, editing, sound effect, visual effects and use of Computer Generated Images (CGI). Not only movie industry you use this for but also music industry, doing music videos.

Believe me with Media Technology you make it well in Nigeria. I was there for some time last year and I see all what they can offer.

have u thot of buying equities - buy low and selling high. if u dont have more than 200k at the moment.

all u need to do is to identify good stocks and invest in them. no cost attached except transaction costs which more or less 4%.

Also u can start with retailing of some goods or better go for LPO for supplies (but from reputable companies only pls).

A clothing line?  Can N200k actually start a clothing line?  (not $)

ok people, I want to start/open a Unisex Salon with other minors like phone business.  CD, DVD, Games for sale at the same venue possible not in da central lagos so average shope rent

- cut hair

- braid hair (extra)

- sell re-charge cards

- sell dvds, games, CDs

- gameshop ps3, x-box 360 (extra)

Considering the fact business is risky and triple risky in Nigeria, do you think 200-250k would be enough to start a barbing shop?  If I was living in Nigeria would I be able to survive and live with this?

I asked my barber who owned a shop in nigeria it should be enough but i should forget nigeria n concetrate on my studies.  But I've been itching to do something like this for a long time.  I basically want to supply the capital and have my cousin manage it for themselves!  If they succeed that's their gain, and if not [then too bad].

fadekemi it depends on what you consider a good business! some business, YES! some, that won't even pay for a shop! so I think you'll get more and better advise if you can atleast specify what type of business you have on mind.

One example: CELL PHONE, which is what most people are going into in Nigeria now, some even go to China, Taiwan, Dubai, and Finland to buy them. With 200,000 thousand naira you might not even have up to 10 good sets after paying for your shop and if you have a shope already or decide to go door to door with it, that amount can only buy between 20 to 25 sets of phone or even less depending on the type and quality some are up to 45 thousand naira each! so using the world "good business" with that amount is kind of tough to advise on!
