Investment and Business Opportunities for the Youth

Youth need to become the driving force for a bright social and economic future of the country. Today many young people grow up with hopes of living their parent’s home in hopes of securing an employment opportunity to generate incomes for survival. Young people are advised by practically everyone to make savings at an earlier stage for a future investment or ‘rainy day.’ We never understand the significance of this advice at the moment because little or no information is backed up to support the cause, so we end up using our money the way we feel best.

However, Investment and Business Opportunities in different sectors seem to be a general concern by our fathers and leaders, for young people, the hardest question here is where to start? We are about to find out!

This document is Volume 2 of the Diaspora Resource Mobilization and Utilization Project Compendium of Investment and Business Opportunities. It is complementary to Volume 1, which presents information on the economy and key sectors that present investment business opportunities.
It presents business ideas that have been identified as most responsive to the priorities in the various sectors. They are presented as one-page summaries to give an insight of the feasibility of their implementation.
