UGANDA: Business ideas for unemployed youth
As we try to find small business ideas to help alleviate the 75% unemployment among our youth, I will keep sharing ideas as I recall them.
The girls’ father used to run a small home based business called Chez Lefranc. Sounds fancy but this is what he used to do.
He used to make a menu for a week and rotate weekly for 3 weeks. So, each day of the week, he used to serve something different.
In Canada, 97% of the population packs their lunch and snack daily. The parents also pack the lunch box for the school going kids.
He used to make a lunch bag full of nutritious fresh food. The customers would seing by in the morning on their way to work and grab a lunch bag. Very cheap compared to eating take away or in a restaurant daily. Besides, you also avoid poison.
This type of business works well in urban centres and more so for small food places which are struggling. You build a clientelle and you are set. Start right where you are. Working people spend so many hours in traffic that they often just like someone to take care of tiny cost savings but necessary things.
