The epileptic power supply in the country had rendered some businesses useless, some died while a few had been successful because of their large financial base to cope with irregular supply of electricity. Most of the entrepreneurs in the country has relocated to another countries where they can be guaranteed a steady power supply.

While some are still in the country stranded, still having the zeal to do business in the country but lack economic power to maintain such business. You don’t need to worry any more as I will expose stream of wealth from businesses that require no electricity in the country today to you.

Here is the list of 12 legitimate businesses you can do without electricity.

1.Estate Agent

You don’t need large sum of capital before you venture into the business.It is a business you can start with just #1000 without necessarily any office (just ensure your phone is functioning well) and start counting thousand in a few days of start.what you need is to get a wood board, painted in black and write all the properties(both for lettings and sales) at your disposal, your phone number and place at strategic position.

The business is networking in nature, you don’t have to wait for your own property to manage before you start.Get in touch with the other agents, collect their properties and after each sale or let the profit will be shared base on Memorandum Of Understanding agree on.

2. Plantain chips production business.

Aside from the love of humans to keep on munching something at one time or the other, the traffic condition in some parts of the country has made this business a lucrative one. All over town, you see people selling plantain chips in traffic everyday. You can also sell at Churches, asalatu prayers, supply offices and supermarkets and also get hawkers to sell for you in traffic.

3. Mobile Boutique

This is a kind of business that involves moving around from one place to another, mostly to corporate organizations to show and sell one’s wares. As you move around, carry your wares to show people at their offices, churches, parties, occasions etc. You necessarily don’t need a shop. The need for people to always change clothes makes this business a good one to try.

You could also make it a point of duty to dress well, as people would always ask you where you do your shopping and you simply reply: “I sell them….” You could either get someone abroad to send clothes to you or buy from Lagos Island market or Jos (in Nigeria). Clothes are relatively cheap in these places.

6. Stand-by Fabric Market Tailoring.

My advice is that before you venture into the business you need to acquire the basic skills in tailoring.Many people have not discover this only few did.If you have ever paid a visit to markets where clothes especially pants and jeans trousers are sold as well as window cotton materials, you would notice that there are tailors all around the market, waiting for you to buy and make adjustments on your trousers to fit.

These tailors are mostly not enough to meet up with the high demand of customers who have adjustments to make on “wait and get” basis. Even if you just have an apprentice experience, this is also an opportunity you can take advantage of. Just position yourself in a good location in the market and get rolling.

7. Mobile Restaurant business.

A lot of employers, employees and even businessmen leave their homes early just to beat the traffic congestion thereby going out without eating any foods. This makes them to eat out, during office hours or after business activities. Hence, if you could package assorted cooked foods, moving from one area to another, you will realize huge profits from this business of food sales.

8. Ankara (Aso Ebi) Sales Business.

The many social activities going on all over town, both weekdays and weekends and with the “aso-ebi” to go with it, the demand for Ankara had increased in geometric ratio.Sales of Ankara has become big business. Starting on a small scale, you can buy in bulk from wholesalers and resell.

9. Bread supplying business.

The love for bread had actually increased because it is cheap, ready made food and easily accessible. You can be sure of making regular income from this business without blinking of an eye if you get involved asap. You can decide to operate from home where people come knocking on your door to buy or you can have a small stall or bread stand within your neighborhood. You can also go mobile if you have a car to use.

10. Jewelries products business.

I will start to explain this by stating a testimony from a friend who said “I started this business 3 years ago, I can proudly say that I have built my house suited in a popular area in lagos, married with a kid and live comfortably from this business.”. He sells jewelries like neck laces, wrist watches(unisex) and rings.

The secrets to his success is that he displays his wares at strategic place like market or major garage where people can easily access his products. Also he buys the products at Lagos island where they are relatively cheap.

11. Food Items Business.

Food is necessity of life, so people must eat every blessed day. And people would always patronize a food store to make their purchases. You could sell rice, beans, semovita, garri, wheat etc. This business is very lucrative as their is always a ready market for it.

12. GSM Accessories
