      Turkey farming business- A Mini Turkey Farm
      This is an agric bizness with a short turnaround period. You can start
      this venture with a room, bq, uncompleted building or any vacant space.
      The profit margin is very handsome. Turkeys mature within a few months and
      they do not smell like other poultry animals. You can recoup your
      investment within 6 months with a very high profit margin.
      The key areas are: Feeding, Where to get supplies of young animals, pest
      control, housing etc.

      2. Custard Powder Production
      Custard as we all know is a fast moving food product here in Nigeria.
      Start up capital is low

      3. Grasscutter farming
      4. Meat Delivery/Supply Business. Food related and very profitable. I can
      provide more info on this concept if necessary. You can supply meat to
      eateries, hotels, restaurants and individuals. You can also bring in live
      cows/goats from the North and sell.
      5. Soap making. Soap is a fast moving consumer product and production
      process is not too complex
      6. Exercise Book production
      7. You can set up a small bakery and expand in future. Nigerians love bread
      8. You can import shoes and other fashion accessories. I know a guy that
      imports male casual shoes from the Uk and he sells to wholesale buyers in
      Lagos. The rate of return is very high, quick turnover is guaranteed and
      the products sell fast because it meets one of the basic needs of man –
      9. Transportation. the recent ban on commercial motorcycles in Lagos has
      thrown up a huge business opportunity for smart investors who understand
      the Lagos business environment.
      10. Supply of corporate gift items.
      11. Small scale Printing press.
      12. Game lounge.

      You can also consider:
      Table water and pure water business
      Export of agric commodities such as ginger, garlic, coacoa or charcoal.
      Production of Toilet roll/ Tissue paper/Serviette. I’m doing a feasibility
      study on this business right now.
