Go very far from where you intend to sell it, look for someone who is into the business.

Tell the person you're planning to start selling very far from where the person is selling from o, so the person won't perceive you as a threat or competition.

Go with a paper and biro.

I believe that's the best place to get first hand knowledge.

Good luck.

Give or take with 20k you are good to go, that's if you are not using gas to fry.

OP: if you follow all these people quoting all these expenses and excuses, you will never start your business. At least start small and progress from there. undecided

Oga she doesn't need all those heavy utensils. Let me give examples. A dozen of plastic flat plates #1,800, small pot for stew #800, a dozen of spoon #300, A bag of satchet water #300, 2tubers of yam #1,600, Potato #1,000, Plantain #1,500, a table and bench #7,500, firewood #1,500. Rough estimate for all these #16,300. Don't know the price of that big umbrella. But if you are using gas your estimate might increase. Just trying to help her start cause she doesn't need to start on a big scale. As the business progresses you can start adding other things. Hope it helps grin

Which 30k is enough to start?
Do you know the cost of vegetable oil?

The cheapest beans now is 400 per derica. Except you want to be buying in very small quantities but oil is what takes most part of the capital because you must have extra oil in case. God help you if you buy the type that dissipates fast.

Just budget 50k.

God bless you genuine intention to hustle.

But please, small or large scale, keep your environment clean as you fry. And tasty sauce too.
I tell you, you will make it.

The fact that you have this in mind and you even have your picture on your DP shows how real you are and it shows you are truly interested in making a decent living.

You have been looking for a job without success and you have finally decided to start something which is a very good step in the right direction.
I decree success and abundant blessing upon your life in Jesus name.... You will go far in life, Mark my word.
