I Started My Business With N600k. Here's the story. by chatinent(m): 1:41pm On May 11
After school, I worked a while. I was this hardworking chap who wouldn't like any errors or queries attached to my name at work for any reasons. I came very early, did my duties in time, and due to my religious obligations as one of Jehovah's Witness, I was honest in all my dealings.

The job itself was a leopard’s tree. Since it was a private business, and the manager a very greedy man who loots the chief oga at whim, trust me, your honesty is a turn-off.

The work was becoming unbecoming and I couldn't continue wasting my life for a 7-5 job. It wasn't like the salary befitted the workload!

I had to quit!

I also had one small car I bought when I no dey think of anything. I sold it and used part of it to buy a land like that. I had saved some N800k already. So I paid my rent with N200k.
So here's what I did:

I thought of a business that'll likely yield profit immediately, and around my budget. I had been to Togo and remembered how selling First Grade OK shoes was the new gold for students and people who wanted a side hustle.

I travelled down there then and returned with 100 pairs of OK shoes. As at then, I bought it for N370k.

N370k + logistics rounded the money up to N400k.

Now, I put the goods in one room in my apartment and the chase for a shop began. Since I couldn't afford those ones of N1m that where located at the heart of the business in my location, I opted for an affordable one.

In fact, everything for the rent was some 180k.

Omo, looking for a shop no bi beans.

I did the painting and decor, carpentry (learnt in school), and electricals (learnt in school).

Materials I bought was some N15k. I was left with N5k or less.


Breakthrough
As I cleaned and sampled my petty goods, some customers were already purchasing. Mehn, after the whole stress that day, I made N30k.

In fact, it was then I said I wouldn't work for anyone and be answering “sir” upandan. I'm quite hardworking and in a short time, from retailing...I began ordering in tonnes and have a warehouse.


It has been easy as it is written here but I have seen people ask if N600k can make any profit. Yes, it can. I also do some side hustles like research writing, proofreading, hardware repairs on PC and tracking of lost devices, computer consultancy, and work as an academic assistant.

So I think it all depends on you! Maybe I have not reached the height I want to reach, just mehn, the way my life every year becomes better than the last no bi beans. As a first son, and to say my nuclear family bi like an extended family, I know I am trying...cos it's not easy at all to carry many people's responsibility as yours.

The story no mean say I don make am sha. I'm just clearing some stereotypes that any amount of money is small for business. As per say I don't support yahoo yahoo, I'm not hustling to be big, bro. I'm hustling to be able to afford my needs without having to affect others.

This is to every young Nigerian out there hustling legitimately. A huge toast to you. I salute y'all entrepreneurial gusto. And surely, the light must shine at the end of the tunnel.

Keep grinding. Keep working. Keep pushing. Your season is near. For this sayeth the Lord.

I honestly love reading stories like this. Especially how young Nigerians are winning and creating a path for ourselves. That's why I am also a huge fan of this Zikoko website. They really communicate how young Nigerians are winning up the money ladder.

Kudos OP!

Of course, success is attainable in Nigeria. We just have to know our onion and have a realistic plan.

I started a computer business with only one desktop computer, chair and table in Dec, 2010 and boom by 2011, I had more than 10 desktop computers with students and a staff.

I've been resting for a while now but am thinking of restarting same venture again, soonest.

Involve one or two members of your family in the business so that the whole weight of your family won't be on your neck.

As the popular saying goes "A rich man in the midst of the poor is also a poor man"
