The farming business is another sector that you’re to watch out. Plans are under way to boost the sector in other to become another revenue generating industry in Nigeria. One vital farming business is poultry and fish farming.
As new hotels, restaurant, caterers springs up, fast food joint, corporate occasions, and celebrations, the need for poultry egg and meat is on the increase.
Also, as the demand domestically increases, the import is discouraged, to boost local production and to ensure we’re taking a healthy meat.
In poultry farming, there are three ways to enter the business.
- Broilers farming: where you grow bird for meat consumption
- Layers farming: Where you grow bird for egg production
- Cockerel farming: where you also grow the bird for meat consumption
Each of the poultry bird you choose to do, you’re going to make a profit.

Whichever type of bookshop you wish to open, you’ll have to look for suppliers. My recommendation is to get 3-5 suppliers and choose from one you can work with.
4. Event Rental Equipment
A wedding planner I got to know some few years ago told me his business is more of outsourcing. He outsources virtually all the equipment he uses which include the tent, canopies, chairs, and table.
Now the owner of that equipment may not necessary be in the business, but renting the equipment to those who are into the business.
You can start the rental equipment business and earn money from it.
Most of the equipment once created stands the test of time. For instance, the canopy stands are created with metal, the only thing you change over time is the canopy itself (which also last longer than you think too).
At the start, create a business where you can be able to rent out this equipment to at least two people. You’ll have the room to expand by reinvesting the profits into the business.
The event rental equipment business is one of the businesses that makes you recover your invested income in time.
5. Building material rentals

Many have little or no time for themselves because the of the nature of their work. To develop more free time for themselves, they have decided to pay for other services. And one of the popular of such services is dry cleaning.

Nine out of ten youth love football. The European football has captured the minds of many. Today, the majority of people can pay any amount if you can stream the football.

Starting the business requires that you have a space (preferably 50X50), satellite dish, Television/projector, standby generator and seats.

Make your place unique and ensure you charges will cover your cost (satellite subscription, generator servicing and fuelling cost and utility bill).
Security measures should be included. Because without security guarantees, no one will visit the viewing centre.
