Best Small Business Ideas in Pakistan

Written by Ali
(Last Updated On: 16/02/2016)

Small business is mostly a private business owned by an individual with low investment and low volume of sales. This type of business is very common in almost every country of the world. If you are creative and hard-working, you can establish a small business by yourself. Creativity and innovation usually help these small businesses to grow into large successful businesses. It can be started with a low amount and if profitable, more investment can be done with the passage of time.

Make a Blog or Website

If you have some knowledge of computer and internet, you probably can make your own blog. It can be related to anything of your interest but it is better if you can research about what market demands so that you can write specifically on those topics. This business is very good for women who prefer to stay at home as house wives and have responsibility to manage their homes. So they can invest around 5-10 thousand rupees in making a blog and they can spend 3-4 hours daily on their blog.

Opening a Shop or Store

If you do not have enough money to buy a franchise or make a super store, then opening a small shop or a small store probably is the best you can do. With 2-3 lac rupees investment you can certainly grow your business in a couple of years and start earning a handsome return on your investment. If you are educated, there is no need to feel shame in opening a shop. In fact your education will help you manage the shop much better than the illiterate and you can quickly grow your business.

Investment in Poultry Sector

If you do not have capacity to make your own poultry farm, you can innovate ways like you can invest in eggs, you can get small chicks and raise them up to 10 days as they are cheaper if bought small and their price increases as they get older. You can invest in their transportation from poultry farm to different hotels and other catering services. There is a lot to do in poultry sector with small investments.

Livestock for Eid

In Pakistan, Eid ul Azha is the time when every Muslim makes sacrifice of the livestock and prices of the livestock are always on the high during Eid days. You can safely invest in few animals for a couple of months and can generate a handsome profit during the Eid days.

Investment in Mushrooms

Mushrooms are getting more and more popular as the Italian Pizzas are becoming a major part of our lives. Without mushroom, the pizza would not taste as delicious. Not only pizza, many other dishes require mushroom as an important ingredient. With an investment of around 1-2 lac rupees one can develop a small industry of mushrooms where mushrooms are produced and then packed into cans to be exported into the market. It is quite profitable as well.

Investment in Grains and other food items

Wheat, rice, sugar cane and many other grains are always on the high. All these grains if properly stored can be used after a long time. Especially rice can get you double profit if 10-12 months old. Investment in the storage of these crops can yield large profits if right choices are made during their purchase and selling.

  • Hello Viewers,

    This is Muhammad Omer From islamabad, i just read above lines in which an idea of a small and low investment plan shows its attraction to invest or to becoming a part of this buiness.

    the main question in ma mind is that here in islamabad we already have these foods , lot of Afghan guyz are serve this food item here and really it is damn good thing as Pervaiz sahab said that its a Hot dawgs.a kind of a berger in which u can use beef or chiken as base.

    here the rate of each burger is maximum as 100rs only than y u mentioned that every customer brings 600 coz thats not an idea of Zinger or u can say a Piza than thing more i wana share that if the product depends only on the brand name and the same taste as i already have here in our surroundings than Y it is in 600. plz clear that thing

    • Dear Muhammad Umer and All Viewers,

      I have many years of experience of jobs as well as business,so I kindly request to all innocent peoples of Pakistan be careful to join any type of business or investment.for example a property giant Malic Riaz of Bahria town advertizing on many tv channells about his “Fallahi kaam”,by doing this he launch “registration”of three projects in Karachi, two projects already booked and sold by “mafias”(Senetor belongs to karachi).

      one projects related to plots,as a resident of karachi everybody knows that there is no any vacant tytle free land in karachi to start any registering of bahria town fake project could you believe Malic Riaz earn more than 5 please be cautioned.

  • Each customer will bring in Rs.600. We plan to serve about 100 or more customers per day. Kiosk should generate approximately. Rs. 60,000 per day. We will need: Kiosk modular buildings, water bottles suppliers, soda suppliers, chips suppliers

  • Each customer will bring in Rs.600. We plan to serve about 100 or more customers per day. Kiosk should generate approximately. Rs. 60,000 per day. We will need: Kiosk modular buildings, water bottles suppliers, soda suppliers, chips suppliers; ground beef, and bun suppliers, shelving and coolers suppliers. Our president Mr. Agha Pervaiz has run several businesses in USA including Dairy Queen Franchises. He will be visiting Pakistan starting October 2013. During his stay here he plans to set up the first model Kiosk of a Hot Dawgs business. Investors welcome, at first, we plan to have ten shareholders each investing Rs. 500,000 (for 2% equity in the co.) These shareholders will help in business development and promotion and find franchisees. In return they will share in profit (loss).This is a new start-up with unique product for Pakistan, and can be expanded in Middle East, and other countries. This is a good opportunity for Overseas Pakistanis and other investors. The partner’s money will be in a separate account and all transactions will be kept transparent, partners will be kept informed on quarterly basis. Our breakeven point will be within two years. We encourage business partners, working partners, and positive thinking dreamers to participate. Inshallah (God willing) we will succeed by the group efforts and help our next generation to prosper. President, Operations Manager and Marketing consultant has put in years effort in planning this project. They will hold preferred stocks in the company, and will be paid suitable remunerations with expense account, and rest of the partners will be part of the profit/ Loss sharing (with 2% equity) in the company. Original stocks might rise as more franchises are sold. Our President/ Founder is in the process of drawing up letters of Understanding for the partners, and contracts for the future franchisees. Franchising costs and terms will be established and declared after getting quotes from suppliers (highlighted above like Kiosks modular…). We do not believe in slick ads and fancy brochures; as soon as our President comes to Pakistan, we will hit the ground running. Please do not send any money, but send us a letter of intention and money you want to invest, your expertise to help in the business development? Whether you live Overseas/ Pakistan, and permanent address? If overseas, how often you can visit Pakistan? Please contact,
