What are the best business ideas in Pakistan? This is the question that is asked very much these days. Pakistani youth having interparental minds wants to start their businesses instead of working on a 5 to 9 job. We compiled a list of the most feasible and profitable businesses that Pakistanis can start with very low investment.
What should be your mindset before starting a business?
It is a dilemma for Pakistanis that they often feel shame in doing small businesses. Remember one thing, counting always starts from 0. So, one should completely leave the mindset of “log Kiya kahain ga” behind. Do whatever business seems profitable and forget what other people will say.
This is one of the few businesses that require zero investment. The only thing that you need to start this business is “Knowledge about the area”.
Recently, my friend and his cousins started a travel agency. So you can get the advantage of his experience. He and his cousins started to promote their agency on their WhatsApp status and their Facebook profiles.
In just a few days, they managed to gather enough people to do a trip to Narran. On their first visit, they made contracts with several hotels and restaurants to provide cheaper facilities for future trips. They earned a handsome profit on that trip too.
2. Clothing and fashion business.
The clothing business does not always need millions to start. You can get started with an investment of 50k. Buy clothes from large cities like Karachi or Lahore and sell them in small cities.
Another market in which you can sell clothes is in the northern areas of Pakistan. Things tend to be expansive in northern areas and you can take advantage of it.
3 Open a vegetable and fruit shop
You might have wondered why specifically vegetables and fruit shop?
The reason is that the profit margin of the Fruits and vegetable business is a lot more than general stores. The second reason is that cash and carries and other malls are becoming a trend these days and people tend to monthly shopping for their monthly ration.
This is also a quite profitable business and can be started by the investment of 3000-5000 PKR. The down point of blogging is that you need to learn hundreds of things and work constantly for a long time to see the results.
Have you ever thought about earning while sitting in the comfort of your home? If you have then freelancing is for you.
The most common misconception about freelancing is that you can earn just by your LUCK. Let’s be clear, if you are paying anyone on the internet, then you must be taking any work from him. Otherwise, you will not pay even a single penny. Same way when you are thinking to earn from freelancing then you must do any work for your customer.
So the point is if you want to learn from freelancing then develop a skill first. Tons of YouTubers teach skills for free.
You can find freelancing work from these websites:
6. Real Estate Agency (Property dealer)
This is another business you can start without (or with a small) investment. All you need is a strong social network or an office at a busy location.
Usually, property dealers get 1 to 2.5% of the total value of the asset as mediation charges from both parties. But, this business involves a lot of risks of getting scammed also.
7. Start working with career / Uber / FoodPanda
If you have a car or you have money to buy a car then joining Careem / Uber is not a bad idea. Many people do it for fun and some do it as a part-time job also.
I have talked with many of these drivers and they still earn more than 50,000 in big cities.
If you don’t have a car but you have a bike then you can join FoodPanda, Cheetah, and many other companies as a rider. Riders earn a decent amount from freelancing with these companies. Some people tip the riders also.
