YOU too can set up an industry of candle making in just PKR 50,000! “How?” you would ask! Let’s see what a celebrated life coach, Javed Chaudry has to say about this matter in his recent video!
According to J. Chaudhry, all the businesses in the world rest on Five Pillars:
Where you would sell your product Machinery. Where would you find the machinery you would need to make your product
Where would you get the raw material from
Where can you get raining to make that product
How much finances would you need Mr. Chaudhry has 10 ideas which would require only PKR 50,000 as an investment to make you an industrialist and set up your dream to run your own business for a living that would not only be sufficient but would surely flourish.
A CANDLE FACTORY
To make this magic all you need is wax, molds, fragrances and colours all which are readily available in most of the cities in Pakistan. To get yourself acquainted and trained on the “how” part of candle-making, just Youtube! To sell these delicate things of beauty, you could set up a small shop or even sell them online. One could potentially earn millions from this venture all you would need to do is create a variety of colours, intricate design and customized artworks for the buyers.
ALL THINGS SWEET-CHOCOLATES, CANDIES AND CUPCAKES
To set this business up, again you would need only a few things. A medium sized oven, a few utensils, coco powder and sugar! Youtube can again be a source of most sophisticated to most easy techniques from around the world. There are many opportunities where you can get training about the art of making chocolates. This product would sell itself on weddings, birthdays, new year and all other celebrations. Sell them through a small bakery of your own or even online trick is to focus on the packaging be creative print photos of the customers, wrap it up or even bake the cakes into interesting and attractive shapes. This venture would earn you a lot through only a little investment.
SCENTS AND AIR FRESHENERS
This venture would need much less than PKR 50,000 to set up. The boundaries are none in terms of how creative you can get in this. Make incense sticks or dip soft cotton balls in fragrances and package them; or even dry sell home grown and dried sweet smelling potpourri in tins that would last a long time! The whole country is a market for this. Selling this would be convenient by placing them in high traffic stores or even online.
DRINK ORGANIC – FRUIT JUICES AND SMOOTHIES
In our market only limited juices are available very mainstream and usual. You can experiment and make juices that would not only be healthy but also delicious. Try berries, or go healthy by using bitter grouds and beetroot, or a mixture of exotic tropical fruits! If you think you can make several kinds of lassi which is most popular in Pakistan. You make these and supply them in gyms, offices and homes of health conscious customers who look for such products but cannot find them yet. If you cannot set up a shop try setting a stall outside a park and watch nature make wonders for you. Hospitals and even universities are potential market and all you need is a juicer blender other than your fresh fruits and vegetables.
HOMEGROWN-FLOWER AND VEGETABLE SEEDS
The next business idea is that of selling seeds for flowers and vegetables. One could easily procure these seeds from around the world the internet has several websites from where we can get information on businesses that sell seeds. Once procured these seeds can be packaged in beautiful containers and sell them online. Saplings and young plants can be bought from local plant nurseries and can be sold further on. This venture can be started from the very rooftops of your houses! Our readers, if try it, growing and selling just Tulips would create wonders for them people venturing to try and own a business in Patoki would fare so well from growing and selling exotic plants and flowers considering the favorable conditions.
FARMING-MUSHROO-MS, BROCCOLI AND ALOE VERA
These first two are expensive vegetables while Aloe Vera a miracle plant! If one has around 2 canal of land, get the seeds for these plants, get onto Youtube to learn how to grow them, and begin! Sell them online and avoid the hassle of having a brick and mortar shop the major cities of Pakistan are very lucrative markets for these products. The imbalance of supply and demand of these items can enable an entrepreneur to earn millions only just by supplying to hotels and restaurants.
Heeling those who would like to live more! There are over 10 million people who are physically disabled among them 4 million are bound to wheel chairs, 1.5 million are from well-off families. These people would like to live a normal life, they would like to go shopping, visit cinemas and eat out in restaurants.

There a few startups already doing this and introducing such a venture in Pakistan is still an opportunity to be explored.
PURE AND SIMPLE-HONEY AND GHEE
The next idea is to produce pure ghee and honey! Package it in attractive boxes and jars! It is simple and very lucrative.
