5 Easiest Ways to Earn a Living in Abuja With Little Investment

Abuja is the capital city of Nigeria. At the 2006 general census, Abuja was said to have a population of approximately 780,000 people. Over the years, more people have moved into the city and made it a beehive of activities. With the number of people moving into the city, the city is yet to be as saturated as most other world major cities. As it stands, Abuja still has a lot of opportunities to be harnessed and even population advantages you can leverage on for business growth. We will be looking at 5 Easiest ways to earn a living in Abuja with little investment.

If you are considering the possibility of relocating to the capital city of Nigeria, here's a quick list of lucrative businesses you can start up with minimal funds to make ends meet and even generate great wealth, in the long run.

1. Professional housekeeping business

If you are the kind of person who enjoys doing house chores, Abuja is the place to make your hobby into a well-paying job. There are a lot of people in this city who often are too busy or stressed to get their apartments cleaned up; these people will need your services and skills and guess what? The demand for professional housekeepers is on the rise!

Starting a professional housekeeping business requires very little investment. All you need to start this business is a mobile phone (preferably with internet access), cleaning materials and enough money to cover your transport to where your services are needed.

The major challenge, however, is getting customers and getting them to trust you enough to let you into their space. This is why you need a strong online presence—this will make people see you have a reputation that you want to protect. Credible referrals from people you have rendered services would also go a long way in getting people to trust your brand.

Let's see another of the 5 Easiest ways to earn a living in Abuja with little investment.

2. Popcorn Business

Popcorn business is very lucrative in Abuja suburbs. The city has a large population of young children and adults, and we all know this group are lovers of all things snacks, why not cash in their cravings?

Starting a popcorn business in Abuja will cost you less than #100,000. All you will be needing is the skill of popcorn making, the popcorn machine (that costs about #30,000), and an excellent location to sell your product. The location could be free or cost at most #10,000/month.

3. Mobile restaurant

You can convert that cooking hobby of yours into a cash cow without as much as owning a restaurant stand. Today, you can start cooking and supplying breakfast and lunch packs to offices. You can take it a notch higher by providing family pack deliveries all at a decent cost. All you need is a little investment of less than #20,000 for foodstuff and container branding.
A lot of people are too caught up in their work to even go out for lunch. How about you fill in this gap and get paid?

NB: leveraging on social media applications like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram can be a big game changer for your business success as a mobile food vendor.

4. Snooker and tennis corner

After a stressful week, some people want to relax and play. In Abuja, there are pubs where people set up snooker and table tennis corners. Customers come there for drinks and end up paying to play snooker or table tennis, and the owners of these corners are making a killing from this business.

The only investment for starting such a spot is money for the lease and getting tables and equipment for the games, and just like that, you are in business.

5. Smoothies and fruit bars

Starting a fruit and smoothies bar in Abuja requires less than #50,000. The main thing you need is adequate knowledge of making smoothies which you can source from the internet and a location. Preferably, the location should be within a pub where all you need to do is pay a lease (this shouldn't be more than #10,000/month) they already have a customer base. You will also be needing blenders, cups and of course, raw materials.

We do hope you found this article helpful; we can't wait to see you and your business here.

Well, as always, on, my aim is to expose these secrets the way no one else will give then out and this time I gave a total of 5 Easiest ways to earn a living in Abuja with little investment.

How Many Square Meters Are In 1 packet Of Floor Tiles?

Carton of tile image

Welcome to yet another wonderful edition on On today's edition, we are going to be learning a very simple but very important topic for every Building Contractor out there. We will be learning How to Calculate the number of square meters in one packet of floor tile...

I chose this topic because it will enable you as an estimator know the quantity of tiles to buy for a particular project provided you have taken off properly and obtained the total area to be tiled.

Before we do this properly, let us first know the dimension of tiles an the number of quantities in every packet of tile you purchase

Tile Dimension Available in Nigerian Market

In Nigeria tile market, you will find tiles in the following Dimensions

300 x 300

300 x 600

400 x 400

400 x 250

600 x 600

Note: All Dimension are in Millimeter (mm)

How Many Piece of tiles exist in one packet?

Having known the dimensions of tiles available in the market, let us now consider the quantity of tiles in each carton/Packet. I will recommend you know the number of tiles in every packet you buy as this will enable you calculate correctly the number of square meters it can cover

For a packet of 300 x 300 tiles, there are 17 pieces

For a packet of 400 x 400 tiles, there are 12 pieces

For a packet of 400 x 250 tiles, there are 15 pieces

For a packet of 600 x 600 tiles, there are 5 pieces

Now we know how many pieces of tiles exists in a carton

Next, lets Calculate the number of square meters exists in a packet of floor tile purchased from a supplier.

How Many Square Meters Exists in 1 packet of floor tiles?

Now that we have been able to determine the number of tiles on every packet, it is now easy to estimate the number of square meters that can be covered by a packet.

In order to estimate the number of square meters in a packet of tile, we must know the surface area of each tile that makes up the packet and then multiply by the total number of tiles in the packet.

Its that simple...

Therefore, lets calculate the total area of each piece of tile and match this using the total number of tiles in a packet.

For a packet of 300 x 300 tiles, there are 17 pieces

This gives us: 300 x 300 x 17 = 1.53m2

For a packet of 400 x 400 tiles, there are 12 pieces

This gives us: 400  x 400 x 12 = 1.92m2

For a packet of 400 x 250 tiles, there are 15 pieces

This gives us: 400 x 250 x 15 = 1.5m2

For a packet of 600 x 600 tiles, there are 4 pieces

This gives us: 600 x 600 x 4 = 1.44m2

Now that you have known the total square meters in every packet of tile out there in the market, all you have to do is divide the value given to you by an estimator by the corresponding value on this page.

If you do this, you will be able to know the number of packets of tiles to buy for your tiling project without wasting much resources!
