There are trades like sewing, hair styling, car repairing and so on that could be learnt. However if you do not have an interest in sitting under anyone to learn, this brings you 5 very lucrative types of farming one could go into…

Cassava Farming: Cassava is a common source of food among Nigerians and garri is gotten from it. It is quite difficult to determine whether Nigerians eat more rice than garri or vice versa. Apart from garri, there are a lot more that can be gotten from cassava. The good thing with cassava is that, it flourishes on nearly all lands in Nigeria and if the land is well managed, one could make thousands of Naira from its production.

Plaintain Plantation: Unlike cassava, you only need to plant it once and after that it keeps producing on its own. Most Nigerian families eat plaintain almost as much as they eat rice. Plaintain, also known as dodo can be eaten with rice or beans. As long as the food is popular in Nigeria, one is sure to make huge income from it.
