Of course 4000 naira is a pretty small amount of money for starting a business. However, there are still some options you can resort to. One of them is cooking and selling street food. You can may Puff-Puff or Chin-Chin or any other tasty Nigerian snack and sell it on the streets. Some people manage to grow their income from such a small business over time and make good money. $20 would be enough to buy all the food ingredients you need to get started the first day. Plus, there is no much risk in such an investment.

To excel in business, you'll learn to follow trends. This is rainy season, and its very good for Heliculture (snail farming), this is because snails tend to do well in the rainy season than dry season. snails like moist environment. Research shows that very few Nigerians go into heliculture, because of its hidden potentials, this gives those into the biz like us to earn very well from the biz.

It is Freelance Marketer for Dry cleaners, all you need to do is to approach a good dry cleaner and talk to them , how you will be introducing customers for them for a fee of N30 per shirts and N100 for suite. Seun guys are making money from them and other 12 ideas. This is just one ideas

you can start an information marketing business.Assuming you source for information on how to print and sell recharge cards.

lets say the manual contain 10pages and we are making 20 manuals.u take it to place where you can photostat for N2,and it should be very clear.N2 multiply 200pages equals N400,binding cost N50 for each manual,N50 multiply 20 equals N1000.

So your total cost for 20 manuals is N1400.

Look for newspaper vendors near bustops, give it to them to sell for you at N1000 for 1 manual,tell them on each manual they sell they take N100 and give you N900. So N900 multiply by 20 equals N18000, subtract your cost of N1400, Your gain is N16600

All the best.

if you still want more ideas you can get my book titled 120 AND MORE BUSINESSES YOU CAN DO AND SUCCEED IN NIGERIA. or contact me 9jabiz@gmail.com

If you reside in Lagos, i can introduce you to a humanitarian organization. You only need N2,500 to register and every week you are sure of getting at least N5,000 or N10,000 at most (every week). I join them not long ago, I am receiving N7,000 every week (I have collected 2 times), this week will make the 3rd time. I have introduced my Wife, she have collected her 1st N10,000 and she is going to collect another one this week. This organization is set out to reduce poverty and unemployment rate on our land.

Start a packaged fruit business. As long as you live in a place where there are corporate businesses (Banks, Law firms, Schools, etc), you will have a ready market. trust me, my wife does it.

example: Pineapple N50 cut for 3 clients = N17 per person

Watermelon =N20 per person

Packages =N20 per person

-------------------------

Total cost N57 per person

The more fruits you put in the higher the cost and sale price

You can sell each pack for between N100 and N150 making a profit of between N40 - N90

If you have 20 clients thats a profit of between N800 - N1800 per day. Thats not bad with a N4, 000 capital. Is it?

Note: as a student, people will readily buy from you. you'll get to meet people, gain confidence etc

Seun, there are actually many small businesss you can start with N400, even without money. Start from inside you. What business will you start if you have a $100000? This is the business you should consider starting. Find somewhere to start with your N4000 and go till you can grow your dream.

For me, am a business writer, so l will probably start with a news- stand.

One thing you could start is Home instructing. Since you are a computer operator, design a simple flyer telling people that you can teach them computer usage in their homes and offices!

Edit the flyers to have 4-6 slots in one A-4 paper (make it a little bigger than a complimentary card).

Go to the nearest campos and make cheap photocopies (usually not moere than N3/page on campuses).

Then cut and distribute to offices,and in your church (or mosque). Each page should give you 4-6 advert boxes!

Another is an online business. But you should look for the one you can start without buying any "kit " or "e-package" from any internet "vulture" that claims that online business will bring you millions in a few weeks.

In its true form its easy to start; only need money to browse in cafe.

There are sites that pay you to write articles and reports. some pay you to write up dissertations etc.

Just hit google and you will get a lot.

To start a business with 4000 is a big challenge to a young man but it is a game that one must have to win. First, this young man should see it as a game to play which must be won. Secondly, he must denial himself alot of thing, pleasure-ladies,fashion,food should stay a while for he to make proper focus in the challenge.

To fly yam is not a bed business, to supply plastic to retailers from the manufacturing firm wouldn't be a bad ideal. To sale flies-Biscuit, cHimChim is good business too. Moreso the individual can start a recharge card business if he can control his call urge.

well, he needs a council.

Guy since you are a student, I believe that you are in High Institution. with the #4000 you can Buy 100 MTN recharge card with 940 which will be gain of 60, while the reminainng money can go for Call. i.e. you can set up a calling center in your room, Even other student will be making call with you phone. It is not easy but b4 you know it you make more profit.

It is hard making suggestion on issues like this without asking questions upon questions. It is very difficult to give a workable advice when you know nothing of the situation on ground and the potential of the would-be investor.

However, since the poster said he is a computer operator, I want to assume he is good in basic desktop publishing. therefore suggest he should conduct a little survey. It is most likely there will be people in the neighborhood who have computers at home and they need an evening tutor. Since he is a computer operator, he can easily share his knowledge for some token amount.

That way, he makes more money to boost up the N4,000 he currently has.

The only issue is: Does he like teaching people?

Hi,

There is this Airwick automatic air freshner my company just brought into the country. Manufactured by reckitt benckisser and people love the product.

With N4,000, you may not be able to start a very profitable business but i may be able to help you.

We normally sell the product with 2 refills for N4,500 and N3500 with one refill but if you register with us as a discount buyer withN2,000, you will be able to buy  the products for N3,700 and N3,000 respectively and make profits of 800 and 500 respectively when you resell.You also buy the refill for N900 and sell for N1,200. This means it takes a total of N5,000 or N5,500 to start this profitable business but i will waive the N2,000 registartion fee for you.

We also pay you commisions for introducing another marketter who registers with us. We pay you N500 on every one who registers as a discount buyer through you and another N500 on whoever the that person introduces to us then N1,000 on whoever this person also introduces to us.

This means if Mr A registers with N2000 through you to buy at a discount either for personal use or  for profit, you earn N500 comission.

Now Mr A brings Mr B to also register and you earn another N500.

Now if Mr B brings Mr C to register, this time you will earn N1,000.

So lets say 10 people registers with us through you, this gives you N5,000

Lets assume each these ten also reccomend the product to ten new people making a hundred, you earn another N500 on each regsitration totalling N50,000

If these 100 people also recommends this lovely product to ten each, these gives us 1000 users and you earn another N100 making N1,000,000 hence you earn a total sum of N1,055,000 as you also enjoy continuos fragrance in your home.

If interested you can call 08023146046 and i will give you a location where you can register and buy the product. Thanks

Hi,

the first thing I will suggest is to do a quick check on the skills that you have. After this, then you must be ready to do the dirty job. The problem with starting a business is not capital but our attitude. I used to have a washerman who would come to the house to wash and iron our clothes. At the end of the month, he was being paid N4,000. This guy was so diligent and was even able to win my trust and those of my friends. Within months, the guy was offering the same service for other people. As I am writing this, the guy collects close to N40,000 on a monthly basis from this service.

So, the question is "are you ready to offer legitimate service?". Visit http://www.nairaland.com/nigeria/topic-103100.0.html for some great business opportunities you may want to consider. Meanwhile, if you need help as regards starting and/or running a business, do visit http://www.eolutosin.com. All the best

yeah, i beleve 4k is small but never say that cos people have started with something around that figure and made something out of it, you said your are a computer engineer or operator, how about training others to do what you know how to do.it will only cost you a little space(which you can get in school) and money for fliers, my advise to you is , place the fliers in the right enviroment and make your fees low, that way you can grow till till the whole world knows dat no amount of money is too lil to sow, in business so,my guy go pick up your dough,

I wish yo intorduce this fellow to selling of a Liquid Laundary starch, Locally Produced, highly effective and well Packaged. It is packed to fit Corporate environment and other areas.

with just that you can invest you money and little effort, I guarantee you of making over 40% return. Should you have any interest, send me a mail to globalvilakoncept@yahoo.com.

Alternatively, you could start producing Plantain chips. I think this may not cost you more than that amount for a very humble begining. Man Look beyound every obstacle. I am a living testimony.

In your neighborhood/ Church/ Mosque everyone uses mobile phones.

Just inform them with word of mouth not spending your cash on advert. to add to it you can print a banner but not necessary at startup.

Simply collect the Phones and contact me.

If u don't have an idea of the fault/problem not to worry just explain what the customer complains are and i'll give u an Idea of the cost of repair. Knowing that you're a middle man/ investor You'll get good discount.

i.e a fone that u charge 1500 to fix , Will be done for between N800 - N1000.

So if you start with 2phones you can get upto a 1500 return on your first trip.

Good Luck

Start a computer business!

Depending on your university/tertiary institution.

If there is constant power and systems are allowed in hostels.

Then meet your classmates and particularly thsoe who have strong believe in you and could give you jobs without asking how you are going to get it done.

Look for an existing computer service center and attempt to rent a system (perhaps your former boss's neighbours). Since you are an operator you must be fast at typing. Get the work done and print for far less depending on your bargaining power.

Deliver such work and expand your client base.

Continue with this trend until you could make your 4k up to 10k then go to compuer village in lagos and get a rickety comp assembled. Even if it is pentium two. It would serve your purpose.

I have written the above out of exeperience. I never owned a printer while in school but I lived on typing jobs. I had a rcikety pentium one and the will to survive with God being on my side too!

Best of luck!

Hello Everyone,

If the guy that posted this thread is still reading. I will like to drop a few hints. Money comes last whenever you want to start anything in life(I know a lot of people will think I'm a joker). But believe this, whenever there is a need to do something in life, go to the drawing board and dont think about the present situations. Just sit down, get a paper, pencil and think about what you can do. (thats the hard part, figuring out what to do). But once you figure it out, then list what you will need to get it done, then map a way to get those things to do your project. Beg, campaign, sell lolipops(just kidding), convince people to donate to your project, show them why they should, make a kraft and re-sell to people to raise money,

, ok, I'll give you an idea.

Business to do with $4000.

1. Open a checking/current a/c in Nigeria.

2. Put in N500. Give it a name, like yourname enterprises.

3. Come back to Nairaland.

4. Create a thread/topic

5. Call it Yourname messengers enterprises.

6. Solicit for business from Nairalands abroad who will like someone to go check on their house project and give honest feedback. Convince them why you're a better alternative to sending $100 to younger ones every 2wks.

7. Guys who will like someone to check on their girlfriend in Unilag and give feedback.

8. People sell land everyday so dumb they dont post pics, so solicit for business and check out these lands and post the pics to emails of those that pay for it. Use your bank a/c to collect your fees.

9. Just let everyone knows you're available on a pay per cycle kind of stuff and you'll be surprise how far this could go.

10. Maintain your intergrity of service and prove your reliability. Convince customers to leave feedback about your performance to encourage others to partronise you.

11. And don't piss Seun off so that you can continue using this free amazon website. You get the gist?

12. If you perform so well, maybe I can pay for a website for you, doesnt cost a lot when compare to the life it could change. Registering a domain, and setting you up on a 2year hosting a/c with your website still won't run up to $200(but thats because I know where to go). But I think you have a ready market here with Nairaland. You know its like Seun's got you your own amazon. The question is, are you up to the challenge. N4000 is just a peice of paper, YOU are the "real thing" YOU are what counts. The one thing that would make it work or make it a stillborn is you and how far you'll be willing to go. In my book, I am at my best when I'm at my lowest.

, My point is, the only thing that can limit you in life is the level of your own imagination. Money as powerful as it is, comes last as far as success goes. The Human mind is capable of whatever it can think of. Dont ever forget that.

, Above all, believe. Be prayerful.

Kenflavor is my man of the year on this one HONESTLY!

Alternatively he can do a pay phone biz as long as he has a phone and if he remains prudent and committed he'll break even sooner or later atleast judgeing by a man with N4000 as capital investment.

Let GOD Bless and guide you!

Start selling nespapers by identifying a good location near to the bus stop or road junction where there is slow movement of vehicles. Since your area is a conservative area they should be able to afford newspapers. And pls consider home/office delivery as well. I tell you the capital that you need is quite small but the return may surprise you, okay. Then you need God's grace to succeed as a first timer in biz. Good Luck.
