19 Best Investment Opportunities for Entrepreneurs in Nigeria
Most times when we talk of investing, we talk of ways in which one can earn passive income or ways in which one can earn by contributing little or no efforts. There are various ways and channels through which entrepreneurs can invest in Nigeria. This article will take you through some of them.
- Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) Bonds: the federal government of Nigeria gives opportunity to investors from all over the country to invest in its bonds and earn interest. With a minimum of 5,000 naira and maximum of 50,000,000 naira, investors can invest in the federal government bond and earn interest rates of up to 13 percent depending on the time frame. Investment time frames range from 2years to 20 years. Investing in the FGN is a safe and legit investment as the bond doesn’t crash, neither does the Nigerian government.
- 2. Livestock farming: livestock farming is one of the fields hidden to a whole lot of entrepreneurs, with the current “ban on frozen fish and meat” bill being passed by the national assembly, there is a need to invest in livestock farming. If the bill finally becomes assented, farmers who are involved in livestock farming especially catfish and poultry will begin to smile to the bank. If you are thinking of a viable investment, you can seize the opportunity now.
- Crypto currency: crypto currency is studied to be one of the riskiest investment or trade, but it definitely pays if you have the know-how. By trading crypto currencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum, you could be earning much more than you bargained for. However, you must have a good knowledge of block chain before investing in crypto currency.
- 4. Agriculture: is one of the major sectors you could invest in. Agriculture birthed many of the millionaires in Nigeria, so investing in it can make you one of them. Furthermore, considering that there are lots of rural areas in Nigeria, agriculture will never die, not anytime from now.
- Gold: gold never loses its value, it retains it instead. This is why many people invest their money in gold and store them for duration of four to ten years, depending. The amazing truth about gold is that, it never loses its value, rather with time, it gets more expensive. So you could be looking at a huge investment if you have the money.
- Real estate: real estate ranges from acquiring lands to houses; acquiring properties. The issue with real estate however is that you might want to be concerned about the locations. For instance, acquiring properties and reselling in big cities like Abuja, Lagos is easier and profitable compared to cities like Osun or Ogun.
- Oil and Gas industry: Nigeria is a blessed country, when it comes to natural resources, we have them in abundance. Bitumen, coal, iron, ore…just keep mentioning them. So investing in this sector will not only yield you more income but also boost the country’s economy.
- Rice farming: rice is one of the most consumed foods in Nigeria. An average Nigerian eats rice after garri more than any other meal. Billions of naira goes into the importation of foreign rice yearly, this is why there is a need for Nigerians to invest in rice farming.
- Pure water Production: pure water or sachet water is another aspect you could invest into. One in three Nigeria consumes pure water daily, so if you are thinking of investing in its continued production, you aren’t wrong.
