1 Ride-hailing business Though it has its challenges just as many other businesses, ride-hailing business is one of the most lucrative among the small businesses that can be explored in Nigeria.

As a driver with any of the major ride-hailing companies in the country, you can earn up to N35,000/40,000 a week, according to a Quora response.

2. Delivery business Like the ride-hailing business, this also falls under the transportation sector. With many social media/online sellers spouting up, coupled with the rising increase in the establishment of startups, the demands for products delivery has also risen.

A report by Stears Business, for instance, captures the rising trend, and profitability, of food delivery business in Nigeria’s economic nerve centre, Lagos.

3. Information products marketing Recently, some young Nigerian lawyers took to social media to lament the peanuts they are being as monthly salaries and some inhumane treatments they are subjected to.

Responding to their tales, Akin Alabi, a federal lawmaker and business mogul, advised them to “sell information products”.

His words: “If you are a struggling lawyer, pick a niche and share loads of information on it. Position yourself as an expert on it. “It could be properties law, gambling law, tax laws, copyright laws etc. Build social media following. Build an email list. Sell information products.”

4. Exporting locally available agricultural products One of the top economic strategies is making good use of comparative cost advantage; that is, an economy’s ability to produce a particular good or service at a lower opportunity cost than its trading partners.

There are some agricultural products widely available in Nigeria which fetch thousands of dollars when exported. In a recent report, Stears Business profiled one of such products, Sesame seeds, as Nigeria’s largest agricultural export. Another one of such products is Ugu’ leaves.

A Facebook user, Olakunle Allison, recently narrated his encounter with a Nigerian gynaecologist making millions of Naira by exporting this to the United Kingdom.

5. Livestock farming Livestock farming is another profitable business venture to explore. The edge this business has is that it can be started with very little capital. And if you want to do it at a large scale level, with the right measures put in place, you can get investors through platforms such as Piggyvest.

Some of the niche areas that can be considered are catfish farming, poultry farming, cattle grazing, goat rearing, snail farming, among others.

6. Selling baby products Professor Yomi Fawehinmi, a former lecturer at the University of Lagos, recently recommended venturing to businesses about baby products.

His valid argument is that the fact that Nigerians will always give birth to children presents an endless opportunity for entrepreneurs in this sector. Thus, selling baby products like pampers, children’s clothes, baby foods, etc. is a worthy venture.

7. Selling cement in new sites Without a doubt, cement is one of the most important “ingredient” in building construction. Many construction engineers or firms handing building projects will very likely prefer buying from sellers close to the construction sites to avoid delays and other hassles related to logistics.

8. Mobile money agents This is a fast-growing business in Nigeria with many people patronising it because of its relative ease.

Instead of going to banks for simple banking transactions involving small money, many Nigerians now prefer patronizing mobile money agents on their streets.

9. Sales of mobile phone accessories Nigeria has the 7th highest number of mobile phone users in the world; 172 million in 2019.

This undoubtedly makes sales of phone accessories a good business venture with consistent rising demands.

10. Solar installation business With the never-ending challenges of stable electricity in Nigeria, the pollution and unhealthy noise of power generators, many people now opt for solar inverters. With a growing demand for inverters by middle-class Nigerians, Solar installation business is a worthy venture to consider.
