My Dad use to say “when the going get’s tough, only the toughs get going”. The competition for jobs out here in Ghana is very real, no doubt about that.With unemployment level very high in Ghana and the Africa continent at large, is not surprising that graduates now accepts just any job offers presented to them that are way beneath their academic qualifications.
Success is one thing that everyone wants but what most people forget is that nobody ever gets rich by being on a salary (except government officials, that is). So why not be your own boss, break out of that comfort zone and start a business you can call your own and make it grow with time.Yes, capital is always an excuse most graduate gives when you tell them to start a business, but at least we can start from somewhere. So let us look at some businesses we can start with a cool 500 cedis or even less.
5. Second hand clothing
Who doesn’t like spending less amount of money for something really nice in quality? Ghanaians are ready to pay anything for second-hand products if they are fit for use.
For this business you need to understand what people want to buy, and build connections with suppliers who can provide you with the goods at any moment.
Just start small, focus on the quality, charge reasonable prices and build your customer base first. The key is to keep your customers happy and not making them feel cheated.
Note to succeed in this particular business one must have to cut off any act of shame. You have to act very smart by calling customers, shouting, convincing the customers etc. You have to know is your business and take it as your means of survival, since you are not stealing you definitely have nothing to be ashamed of. My dad once told me” Don’t be afraid of your hustle because nobody will feed you when you are broke.
4. Poultry farming
This sector has what it takes to be successful millionaire. Birds are easy to rear; they breed fast and quickly mature to market weight.
You can start small and quickly scale up, which makes poultry farming a profitable business in Ghana. Sell eggs and meat in the market and get your pockets filled with a lot of cash.
Lot of people look down on these sector but they are getting it all wrong. You can be successful if you are determined to make it. We have lot of graduates on the street who offered Agricultural Science back in school but will never go into these because they think is not the right work. Wise up and get into poultry farming if you really want to make it.
