Simple No NAFDAC Water Business That Beats Pure Water Business Hands Down


Simple No NAFDAC Water Business That Beats Pure Water Business Hands Down

It is really necessary for business people to always keep their eyes open for business opportunities. This even becomes more imperative for business consultants like me. So when I was doing the final burial rites of my mom, I was walking with my two eyes open for business opportunities.

Somewhere on this site, I have dealt with that but I thought I should treat this separately for the serious profit potential it possesses and the versatility of the idea. It will work almost everywhere and for a long time.

So welcome to the water business that beats pure water hands down.

Have you ever noticed people fetching water with 50-liter cans and distributing to places. They will hang them on their shoulders or push with cart at times. These guys make money though through the hard way. If a can sells for N50, twenty will bring N1000. Now, imagine how much business will bring if  this is scaled up.

I am not imagining anything but what I know is that I spent 7500 to fetch water during my mom’s burial and it was just damned easy money. I almost hit myself for not telling my readers this idea before and I have been seeing this for years. This must be the source of the Yoruba   saying that water fetchers will never do so without profit.

So this business is fetching water for people only that you will not be using your back or cart. It will cost you some money but this you will defray within a short time.


What Do You Need?

  1. You need a vehicle and it does not have to be a new one. You can get a used 6 wheeler or old Volvo car and cut the back. You must have seen the type they use to ferry wood. Get a vehicle, you need one. When you grow the business, you can buy a tanker.
  2. If you are not so loaded, do the driving. If you are starting big, get a corporate driver. He must dress well.
  3. You need a movable water pump to load and offload.
  4. You need containers like tanks, 50-liter kegs and drums. You may rent them out to party people on gaily basis. A 2000 liters tank is N1000 overnight. If they rent this out 11 times, they have recouped the money as the tank sells for around 11k.. I tell you this business is next to stealing.

Where Do You Get Your Water From.

It depends on many factors.

  1. If you have rivers or brooks around you, you can go fetch from there for free.
  2. You can buy from water corporations and borehole owners.
  3. You can sink your own borehole if you have the space and money. No, a well will not bring enough water to sustain this business.

Your Market.

They are many depending on where you stay and situations. There are days you service people throwing parties and events people. If water fails in an area go in and make the kill. Walk with your ears and eye wide open. Be close to the ground. Generally these are you main targets.

  •  Food sellers, Mama Shikiras And Mama puts. They consume a lot of water.
  • Yes, small and medium hotels do have water problems.
  • Hospitals.
  • Building sites.
  • Hospitals.
  • People throwing parties.
  • Individuals where they have water problems and they are many.
  • Car wash.


You can start this business with a shoe string budget. A used Volvo that runs you can get with about 50k and cut the back and build it with rods with another 50k. With 100k, you can start this in your vicinity.

Some people are lazy with lazier children who find it difficult to fetch water from the well. Tell them, they need not bother, you will supply them.

A serious guy will ride a jeep within a short period of time with this business and you know people which is a big asset.

Go start. No NAFDAC or regulatory body to run after you. It is water, you can never fail.
