They are so many businesses existing in our society today that you will never believe can turn lives around. It is all about having an idea and striving to achieve your desired goal.
The following are businesses people do that put food on their table and eventually turns their life around.
Some of these businesses do not hinder them from doing other things like having a full time job.
There are people working in big markets as sharers.
People involved in this type of business are mostly women. They leave for this market early in the morning, as they wait for people who buy goods probably in baskets or bags. Their job is to help two or more buyers share either basket of tomatoes, bag of garden eggs, onions, pepper e.t.c.
After sharing, the buyers contributes equal amount of money to pay the sharer and they both believe the sharing is equal since it was shared by a third part.
A sharer makes money only when people decides to buy and share goods. These sharers are mostly spotted in big fruit markets.
This type of market is an early morning market where they make their money and still, returns back to their various daily activities.

You won’t believe this business spills money. The hawkers of plantain chips are seen as just mere hawkers but, do you know they have their group just like a union? Do you know these hawkers comes to their suppliers in large numbers to buy chips? Do you know these hawkers do not fry or package this chips themselves? Do you know these hawkers buys chips from women who comes from far distance just to supply these chips?
