, 10 Best Business Ideas for 2020 in NigeriaWhen talking about business ideas, one thing we need to consider is the trends and the economic situation in the country. So considering the trends in Nigeria, we shall be looking at the 10 best business ideas for 2020 in Nigeria.

These businesses are lucrative and you need little capital to start.

We all know that in Nigeria today, our borders are closed to the importation of foodstuffs which we also produce in Nigeria. This is to enable us to produce more consumable goods enough to take care of our daily consumption needs as a nation. Which in turn will help improve the economic situation of the country.

I guess you know where we are headed by now. This is an opportunity for Nigerians to embrace agriculture. Nigeria, being the largest African country, consumes so many foodstuffs. And in fact, we buy a lot of household items, clothes, drugs, data, airtime, lands and several other things that we need daily.

Nigeria – Africa’s Business Hub of All Time

Have you ever thought of why foreign investors still troop into Nigeria? even with the present economic situation in the country.

Our population, of course, is one reason why businessmen and women troop in to invest. Despite the economic recession.

I’ve seen several organizations, come to Nigeria, and succeed within a few months, in this harsh economy. Most of us don’t see what others outside see.

Nigeria is the business hub of Africa. Almost every business is centered around Nigeria and every company that comes into Nigeria succeeds within a very short period.

I strongly believe if we learn to depend on our selves and stop patronizing other neighboring countries for little things like tomatoes, chicken, and fruits, we would be better off.

Particularly, if the government would support youths and pensioners with the resources.

However, below are 10 best businesses for 2020 in Nigeria I’ve taken time to research. So let’s take a look at them one by one.

Agriculture is my number one business, knowing the present economic situation and trends. It’s important to embrace agriculture. Everyone needs food to survive.

, 10 Best Business Ideas for 2020 in Nigeria

Livestock farming is number one on my list of 10 best ideas for 2020 in Nigeria. As I said earlier, we are going back to agriculture because of the decision of the government to close our borders. We have stayed long enough on this mountain of total reliance on oil. Technology is evolving, and in a few years, some of the countries buying crude oil from us will no longer need us. Especially, with the invention of electric cars.

Change is always difficult to cope with, but it’s a necessary tool for progress. Now, you can become a livestock farmer and be sure of making millions in a few months, if you know how to go about it.

Below is a list of some of the livestock farming available in Nigeria

  • Poultry farming – As a poultry farmer, you can make millions within six months to one year. Because of our population. We consume a lot of eggs and meat from a poultry farm. Hotels, restaurants, and homes need a lot of chicken and eggs to meet daily consumption needs. So if you are looking to start a business in Nigeria come 2020, consider poultry farming.
  • Snail farming is another business that is very lucrative. I guess that’s because it’s scarce. But you can start snail farming and make it big within a short time.
  • Fish farming is another very lucrative business that thrives in Nigeria. Nigerians and foreign nationals consume a lot of fish. So start this business in 2020 and earn millions in Nigeria, within six months to one year.
  • Quail Farming – Quail eggs are said to have medicinal properties. As we all know people are willing to do anything to stay healthy.

Natural Health Consultant

The next business in my list of the best business ideas for 2020 is natural health consultancy. “Health they say “is wealth.” No matter how much money you have in your bank account, without good health, you cannot enjoy that money.

People are willing to pay any amount of money to take care of their health. And as it stands now, there are millions of people suffering from health challenges that only natural drugs and supplements can solve.

Conventional or orthodox medicines do not have a cure for most health challenges that people face. Diseases like stroke, kidney failure, health disease, hepatitis, fibroid, prostate enlargement, and cancer cannot be cured with conventional drugs. Also, technology has made it possible for people to be able to prevent prostate enlargement, cervical cancer, ovarian cyst, virginal cancer and several other diseases with the use of anion stripped panty liners. So, there is a need to create awareness for people to be able to know the importance of natural herbs to the body.

Or why do you think universities in Nigeria, are now accrediting African traditional medicine degree and certificate courses? They now see the need to go back to natural drugs since orthodox drugs cannot proffer solutions to most of the prevalent diseases that people suffer today.

I have also experience heart palpitations that orthodox drugs could not take care of. I decided to take herbal drugs which stopped the palpitations for more than a year now.

So if you ask me, I think the chances of succeeding in natural health consultancy is very huge because people are yet to know about it. But if you can create awareness. Enough to convince people on why they need herbal drugs. You will surely succeed.

Network Marketing

Today, network marketing is like an oil business. It is one business that has made millionaires. It is a business you do without educational qualification or age limit. Everyone is qualified to do it. Gender and tribe notwithstanding. You can partner with any of the companies that provide such opportunities and use their brand to build your business and become your own boss.

Some people find it difficult to do network marketing, but I see it as the best and easiest way to become a millionaire and live the life you have dreamed to live. Because with multilevel marketing, you earn while you sleep. As you leverage on teamwork. See the list of some network marketing companies in Nigeria.

Some Network Marketing companies in Nigeria

Amongst the 10 best business ideas for 2020 in Nigeria, network marketing is one that I think should not be taken lightly. Because of one company that has become a household name in Nigeria.

Longrich Bioscience International – This company came to Nigeria 7 years ago, and within these years, they have been able to reach several millions of Nigerians with their products. What makes it unique is that the products are items that everyone needs at home. Which of course includes children.

Items produced by Longrich include bath foam, bathing soap, alkaline cup, energy shoes for stroke and arthritis. Energy necklace, pot, drugs, panty liners etcetera

My attention was drawn to Longrich when I discovered the effect of their panty liners and sanitary pads. Which helps prevent and treat prostate cancer in men, cervical, virginal, ovarian cancer in women and fibroid. So, if you are considering going into any multi-level marketing business, consider Longrich.

I’m presently working to create awareness on how to prevent prostate and other forms of cancer that always affect the male and female reproductive system.

You can also become a stockist at Longrich and earn as distributors come to buy from you. I think this is a huge leap forward for those who don’t want to refer.
