With over 45 million unemployed graduates in Nigeria today (non-graduates not counted), and with the Covid-19 Pandemic ravaging the world and spike on the infection cases which has overwhelmed our medical experts and affected the economy of the country so badly.
The Covid-19 has also brought about huge lost of jobs and created hardship on businesses and the increasing number of cases is worrisome.
The only thing in the mind of the people now is survival, and venturing into business that can provide means of livelihood during this period is very vital.
We have carefully draft out some businesses anyone can start-up during this period through a viable research from our experts.
Poultry farming is one of the best and most lucrative business ideas in Nigeria right now. This has a lot to do with the fact that Nigerians love meat a lot especially Poultry. The ones we consume in our homes, in restaurants and eateries.
The demand for poultry meat is so high that a lot of dealers of poultry products resort to smuggling these items in from neighbouring of countries just to meet up with demands and during this period, the borders are shutdown.
This ought not to be so considering that poultry farms are fairly easy to set up and could even be set up in your backyard. There are lots of products you can sell as a poultry farmer; you can package and sell frozen poultry meat, you could distribute and sell eggs or you could eve sell day-old chicks to other interested poultry farmers.
Snacks making is another hot business opportunity in Nigeria. If you’ve ever been on Lagos-Ibadan express road or on Benin-Ore express road, you would see how lots of Nigerians make their living from selling pre-packaged snacks like plantain chips, Coconut Chips, Potato chips, Chin-Chin and Popcorns to mention few.
You can set up a similar business as well and supply your products to supermarkets, schools and grocery stores or get salesmen to help you sell them at roadsides and in strategic selling places for a commission.
With lot of people staying at home especially the children because of the Covid-19 pandemic, the children tends to consume much of snacks at home. The good business aspect of snacks is that it’s consumed by both children and adults, anywhere and anytime.
Metal scrap trading/waste collection
This is a business that a lot of people would ignore due to its ‘messy’ nature but this messy business has turned a lot of Nigerians to millionaires.
It’s really simple, what needs to be done is to look for people who can go around to pick or buy metal scraps if you cannot do so yourself. Or you could set up a metal scrap depot where people can come and sell their metal scraps to you for a token. These scraps are usually bought by importers in China and other countries for production of different kinds of products. If you are interested in this business and how to get these importers that will buy them and to know more about this business, contact us.
Livestock feed production
If you noticed, Nigerians have embraced agriculture these days like never before and livestock farming is becoming increasingly popular.
But like we always tell people, don’t do what everyone is doing get the appropriate training and information before venturing into this business.
You should also look at the other side of this business which is considering the production of livestock feeds that livestock farmers would use to feed their animals.
Mobile fruit juice bar
Nigerians have learnt to pay more attention to their health and eat right especially during this time, nothing would sell better than natural fresh, fruit juice in a mobile cart which people can use to quench their thirst on a a go.
Health experts has advised the public to eat well and take lots of fruits and vegetables. Coming up with a business idea that can make a blend and production of healthy fruit juice and nuts drinks will really be a smart move.
Mobile food vendor
You would agree with me that Nigerians don’t joke with the “stomach infrastructure”. This is why a mobile restaurant would be a great idea especially for the working class ones who barely have enough time to grab a bite before leaving their homes every morning.
If you can be hygienic and package your mode of operation and be a little more stylish on the food you provide and surely people will rush to you.
This is another business that is fast gaining a strong reputation and acceptance in Nigeria especially during this period where schools are closed and the students are searching for a way to learn and continue their studies.
It involves training people on short courses, helping students with assignments and projects and basically imparting knowledge over the internet. There are several ways you can venture into this;
Creating your own online classes via a website, WhatsApp, Zoom, Skype and other numerous means. You can make a lot of money especially this period as a teacher who’s just sitting at home now doing nothing.
There are so many websites and Apps that you can register with as a tutor and teach students on different fields. This will really generate lot of fund for you because the demands for online classes has increased

Fitness and beauty consultant
Call us vain but we are Nigerians and we love looking good. Ten years ago, this kind of business may not have made sense, as fitness was kind of an alien concept to Nigerians. But these days, just claim you have any product that would make people slimmer, lighter, have flat abs, pink lips, long hair, full lashes or enhance the body in anyway; you would have dozens of Nigerians swooning to you like bees do to honey.
This kind of business is very vital especially this period that Nigerians has advised to live healthy and remain fit during this Covid-19 pandemic period.
