    There are many businesses one can venture into in Nigeria which would yield great rewards or rather profits.
    Factors that would influence the returns would vary and might be influenced by a number of reasons ranging from the input, logistics, time factor.
    Below are few ventures I suggest

    1. Farming: Farming in Nigeria has seen drastic changes turning to better directions in recent years, creating jobs and opportunities for entrepreneurs who dare to go into farming. Millionaires are currently been made yearly through farming in Nigeria and there is no end to the prospects of creating more wealth in the coming years.

    2. Real estate: investing in real estate might sounds far fetched and even “professional stuff” but there is endless possibilities to streams of income that can be generated from it and there is nothing stopping you from investigating in it.

    3. Rental income: generating rental income from houses and real estate can as well reap huge benefits.

    4. Telecommunications: Vending of airtime and data is a huge “becoming”.

    The rate of consumption of data in Nigeria is so large and won’t it be a shame if you miss out on such opportunity. With the enormous gratification of internet service data requiring there is no telling how much one can cash out. There is the social media_ twitter, facebook, Instagram, snap chat, telegram,  what’s app and all to log into music and videos to surf and data is needed why not give it a try.

    2. Fabrics marketing: With as low as twenty thousand naira, you can start this business. It involves selling clothing materials like plain and pattern material for men, Ankara for both sex and others.

    3. Mini importation: This comes last on this list but I could bet my dinner, it would definitely fetch you lots of money if you get serious with it. This involves the selling of products imported to our country. This can be done with little capital.

    4. Dropshipping: It is a trending business where you sell products to customers that you don’t own. All you need to do is the customers places their orders with you and the chosen supplier shipped their products directly to them.
